Brisbane’s Waterway Asset Management Planning To Support Resilient Rivers
Brisbane’s waterways are an essential component of the environmental, social and economic health of our river city. Our waterways provide a multitude of services to residents and visitors including amenity and recreation areas that significantly contributes to the liveability of Brisbane, corridors for walking and cycling, conveyance of flood waters, drainage into to our iconic river and Ramsar listed Moreton Bay, natural areas for animals and corridors of vegetation that contribute to clean air in Brisbane.
To effectively manage these multifunctional natural assets alongside traditional council assets like roads and buildings, Brisbane City Council (Council) has developed a new approach that aligns with best practice for infrastructure management (International Infrastructure Management Manual).
Brisbane’s Waterway Asset Management project supports the delivery of Council’s Clean Green Sustainable City Program and allows the delivery of Council’s long-term vision as outlined in Brisbane Vision 2031. This presentation will describe the journey and lessons learned.
