Walter Taylor Bridge, Brisbane


Walter Taylor Bridge, Brisbane
The Walter Taylor Bridge is a bridge forming the eleventh crossing of the Brisbane River. It crosses between Indooroopilly and Chelmer.

It was opened on 14th February, 1936 by the Governor of Queensland, Sir Leslie Orme Wilson.

It is shared by vehicular traffic and pedestrians.

The bridge is unique among Brisbane bridges in that the two towers of the bridge house residential accomodation. At the time of construction, a large open area was built directly underneath the bridge, the site of a planned ballroom.

The Walter Taylor Bridge is one of four bridges in very close proximity. The others are the Albert Bridge, its unnamed companion, and the Jack Pesch Bridge.
