a bridge too far?

I am informed by Transcity that the pedestrian bridge connecting the Brisbane Grammar schools to the Victoria Park Golf Course will be closed for construction activities from mid December 2011 until late January 2012.

Transcity are going to lengthen the span of the pedestrian bridge by 15 metres, effectively extending the structure above the new outbound ICB lanes.

The existing access ways to this bridge make it very difficult for special populations (such as disabled people, the elderly, infants, parents with prams etc), to access the city.

Transcity/Brisbane City Council are extending the pedestrian bridge without addressing any of the access issues.

I understand Qld Rail own sections of the bridge but the new works are clearly the responsibility of Brisbane City Council.
