Did you know that there will soon be a new, state-of-the-art bridge from Leyton St to Wolverhampton St over Kedron Brook in Stafford?



Strategically situated in the heart of Stafford, the bridge is set to redefine connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists while providing a robust, flood-resistant crossing over Kedron Brook. 

The project is part of the massive Kedron Brook restoration works after the creek crossing near Wolverhampton St succumbed to the destructive force of a devastating flood event in 2022, leading to its complete obliteration.  

It’s also part of over $26 million worth of sustainable transportation infrastructure projects being rolled out in Brisbane.

Responding with diligence, the Council undertook the task of reconnecting the bikeway and initiated comprehensive improvement works to restore the area to its former glory.

The work has been a meticulous endeavour that tackled severe erosion along the eastern embankment of Kedron Brook.

Key elements of the culvert crossing and adjacent concrete pathways washed away during the flood, were painstakingly reconstructed whilst a commitment to preserving the habitats of protected native species, such as the Tusked Frogs, was also set in place.

Restoration efforts culminated in the early months of 2023, with the re-establishment of the destroyed Wolverhampton St creek crossing occurring in February of the same year. Whilst the focus initially rested on immediate restoration, the Council concurrently embarked on an ambitious endeavour: the design and realization of an upgraded bridge that not only guarantees long-term flood resilience but also amplifies connectivity, promoting active travel.



The new Leyton-Wolverhampton Bridge signals a renewed focus on fostering mobility, environmental stewardship, and community well-being, establishing the foundation for a more connected and resilient future.
