The first recommendation from this report was that a two deck continuous girder bridge be constructed from the end of Kangaroo Point to Petrie's Bight and that a 150 feet wide shipping canal be cut through Kangaroo Point and be spanned by a singel deck 190 feet span bascule bridge. Brisbane ended up with one of the alternatives - the single deck bridge we now know as Story Bridge.
