The Toowong to West End green bridge will cater to pedestrians, cyclists, and possibly for public transport depending on the outcome of public consultation and traffic studies. 

The proposed bridge will serve as the link between the West End and Toowong business area, rail and ferry services, existing walking and cycling network, as well as the proposed St Lucia to West End green bridge.

The Council has identified the proposed alignment which will extend from near Archer Street in Toowong, across the Brisbane River to Orleigh Park, and near Forbes Street in West End.
