The Neville Bonner Bridge is a proposed pedestrian bridge across the Brisbane River in Brisbane, Australia. The bridge will connect the suburb of South Bank with the Brisbane CBD. The bridge is named after Neville Bonner AO, Australia’s first Indigenous member of the Parliament of Australia; ironically, the bridge will be white. The design concept for the bridge, by Grimshaw Architects, is an arch and single mast suspension bridge supported by one mid-river pier. A large observation deck will be located in the centre of the bridge.
