History

The footbridge, which is still in daily use, was built to a standard design that has not substantially changed for most of the 20th century.

According to A Heritage Management Survey conducted by Buchanan Architects, footbridges of this type have become rare in Queensland and are a familiar sight only on the Brisbane metropolitan lines and the Ipswich to Toowoomba Main Line. QR does not enter footbridges in the QR Heritage Asset Register unless they are part of a heritage complex. However, the survey strongly encourages the conservation of this footbridge.

Description

This is a standard double-span overhead footbridge that makes a strong visual contribution to the Yeronga Railway Station setting. The bridge is of timber frame construction on concrete pad footings with timber treads, deck and landings.
