Study looks at second bridge

IPSWICH City Council and the State Government have started a feasibility study into a second vehicle bridge designed to divert traffic from an increasingly congested Ipswich CBD.

Ipswich City Council and the State Government have started a joint feasibility study on a bridge across the Bremer River linking North and East Ipswich.

The new bridge would start from the end of Lawrence Street, North Ipswich and link with Norman Street, Basin Pocket then Jacaranda Street, East Ipswich.

City works committee chairman Trevor Nardi said he expected the feasibility study would be finished by the end of the year.
