Brisbane Riverwalk Redevelopment Starts

Posted: 14th August 2014

Brisbane Riverwalk

Midway Metals have been proud to be involved in the supply of materials and the construction of the new Brisbane City Riverwalk. The original Riverwalk structure was lost to the community in the flood waters back in January 2011.

The Riverwalk is an 850 metre stainless steel boardwalk linking New Farm to Howard Smith Wharves. It has been sorely missed since it’s demise as it was a popular venue for a leisurely weekend stroll. We are pleased to report that the project is well underway and the walk will soon be reinstated.

The Riverwalk consists of 3 sets of rails that have been constructed to help with movement and storage of the pre-cast girders.
