Green Bridge

The pedestrian and cycle link spans 130 metres across the Nerang River, connecting to the Thomas Drive retail and restaurant strip. At the same height as the Chevron West bridge connecting Chevron Island to Bundall Road, it allows continued access for watercraft.

A joint venture partnership, with Georgiou Group Pty Ltd and Brady Marine & Civil Pty Ltd, designed and built the green bridge pedestrian and cycle connector to Chevron Island.

Key design features

The design also adopts principles of the voronoi. It provides for an arrival experience into the precinct with an informal seating area and space for a pop-up food cart or performers. It has views across the water to HOTA and over to the Surfers Paradise skyline.

40 Million Mornings

HOTA Green Bridge landing over Evandale Lake has a distinctive landmark celebrating the arrival and departure of visitors to HOTA. The J-shaped landing is wrapped with a striking three dimensional façade titled 40 Million Mornings.

The folded form and golden hue represents the colour of the sun on the Nerang River over 40 million mornings. See the fact sheet on the HOTA Project resources page for further information.

  • Who built the Green Bridge?

    Georgiou Brady Joint Venture (GBJV) designed and constructed HOTA Green Bridge to Chevron Island.

    As the name suggests, this was a joint venture between national construction company, Georgiou Group and bridge building specialists, Brady Civil and Marine.

  • Why is it called Green Bridge? Why is it coloured blue?

    The blue deck and balustrade draws on our quintessentially Gold Coast lifestyle — blue sky, crystal clear blue water and the Nerang River that flows under the bridge.

    Architecturally, the addition of colour elevates the green bridge from being just another piece of infrastructure to something of cultural significance.

    Green Bridge offers HOTA visitors a ‘green’ form of transport (walking or cycling). This is a term used frequently by urban designers.

  • How high is the bridge?

    The bridge at its highest point is the same height as the existing Chevron Island western road bridge (to Bundall). This ensures that watercraft can pass under the existing bridge as well as HOTA Green Bridge.
