Calls for a pedestrian bridge to be built over Anzac Ave, by Hercules Rd State School, are back – and getting louder.
It follows news a $19 million overpass will be constructed across Elizabeth Ave for students at Clontarf Beach State High School (CBSHS).

Federal Member for Petrie Luke Howarth said he preferred the money to be spent on a bridge at Hercules Rd, which has “been an issue for years”.
State Member for Redcliffe Yvette D’Ath said the “whole community” needed to be heard on the Elizabeth Ave bridge plan and would “welcome” a funding extension for broader consultation.
