The Go-Between Bridge has just opened to the public and it should make travels from the North to the South of Brisbane that little bit easier for commuters.
Brisbane’s new Go-Between Bridge is located between South Brisbane and Hale Street and opened to the public this week with apparently 50 cars using the bridge in its first hour (even though it was at four in the morning!).
The Go-Between Bridge cost Brisbane a whopping $328 million and Brisbanites have been eagerly anticipating its opening since construction began in June 2008.
I haven’t travelled across the bridge myself yet, but from what I hear it makes travelling from the north of the Brisbane River to the south a lot easier, especially for those commuting to work in peak times.
By travelling across the Go-Between Bridge you could be saving 10-15 minutes of travel time, the only downside is a toll of $1.50 which will be going up to $2 in January and then up again to $2.35 plus inflation in July 2011.
The Go-Between Bridge also has a separate pathway for bicycles and pedestrians, but personally I’m just looking forward to giving it a test drive.
Have you used the Go-Between Bridge yet? Did it make your journey quicker?
