The Riverside Expressway is part of the Pacific Motorway that runs through Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It is located on the western side of the Brisbane CBD and is made up of various bridges and overpasses. The North Bank development is proposed to alleviate the visual disruption of the expressway and recapture Brisbane for pedestrians. The Expressway runs the entire western length of the Brisbane CBD from Coronation Drive to the Captain Cook Bridge at Gardens Point, an estimated 3 km before becoming the Pacific Motorway which ends at the Gold Coast. Construction on the Riverside Expressway began in late 1968, when the pylons for the bridge were laid on the North bank of the Brisbane River. The bridge was completed in 1975. During September and October 2006, roadworks occurred on the Expressway, and surrounding structures, including the Captain Cook Bridge. Maintenance on these structures had not been done since its construction in the 1970's. On 17 October 2006, parts of the expressway were closed due to safety concerns regarding hairline cracks in the Alice St and Ann St ramps. #Australia #Bridge #Brisbane #Expressway #Highway #Motorway #Pacific #Queensland #River #Riverside #Road
