Constructed between 1930 and 1932 the William Jolly (Grey Street) Bridge, is named after Brisbane’s first Lord Mayor William Jolly. Whilst the bridge was originally known as the Grey Street Bridge, it was renamed in July 1955 in memory of William Jolly.
The bridge was constructed by Manuel R. Hornibrook’s company, now part of Lend Lease, for an estimated $840,000 (Information from Baulderstone). In 1996 the bridge was placed on the Queensland Heritage Register. In 2002 the bridge played host to some of the cast of Inspector Gadget 2 as part of the move was filmed on location.
