Jubilee Bridge Replacement, Queensland

Share on:

The Jubilee Bridge Replacement project in Innisfail, Queensland received the Concrete Institute of Australia’s National Award in the $5 million - $50 million category. In conjunction with Cassowary Coast Regional Council, GHD was recognised for the innovative use of both precast and in-situ elements, as well as the concrete balustrades and detailing in the bridge. Importantly, the bridge design successfully maintained the art deco architectural heritage of the town.

The original Jubilee Bridge was built in 1923, but was closed in 2010 due to safety concerns. Re-establishing a pedestrian and vehicular link across the Johnstone River System was crucial for Innisfail.

GHD delivered a range of integrated services for the replacement project. We provided structural and risk assessments, safety audits of the old crossing, as well as concept design and options analysis, detailed design and documentation, geotechnical investigations and construction phase services for the new bridge.



Economic and population growth, greater urbanisation and increased mobility are boosting demand for new infrastructure and services straining the capacity and effectiveness of existing assets. Single mode approaches are no longer viable as governments and stakeholders recognise the need for multi-modal solutions across the whole integrated network.

Across the whole transport spectrum of airports, maritime, roads and highways, rail bridges and logistics, our team provides integrated transport services throughout the project lifecycle - from initial policy, transport planning, economics and business case advice, through concept, procurement, detailed design and construction to operations, maintenance and asset management.
