The Walter Taylor Bridge is a heritage-listed suspension bridge crossing the Brisbane River between Indooroopilly and Chelmer in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It is shared by motor traffic and pedestrians and is the only habitable bridge in the Southern Hemisphere.
The bridge was conceived, designed, built and funded by local visionary Walter Taylor. It is a suspension bridge and the support cables were actually surplus cables used to hold up the incomplete halves of the Sydney Harbour Bridge during its construction. When the bridge opened it had the longest span of any suspension bridge in Australia.
The bridge was opened on 14 February 1936 by the Governor of Queensland, Sir Leslie Wilson, with the final cost (anchorage to anchorage) coming to £85,000. The bridge was operated as a toll bridge until the 1960s, with a toll collection booth located at the Northern (Indooroopilly) end. During that time, the bridge was known as the "Indooroopilly Toll Bridge".
After Walter Taylor's death in 1955, the bridge was renamed the Walter Taylor Bridge in his honour in 1956.
This addon features the Walter Taylor Bridge, the Indooroopilly Railway Bridge and the Albert Bridge in game. I will be adding the last bridge (and something else) in a future version.
