The Go-Betweens have had a bridge in their Australian hometown of Brisbane named after them.

Reported in The Courier Mail, the city’s Hale Street Link has now been renamed the Go Between Bridge after the name won a poll held by residents.

Founding member of the group Robert Forster said at the official naming ceremony: “My thoughts are that bridges are romantic and poetic. If The Go-Betweens name is going to be lent to anything then I think a bridge is perfect.”

The Courier Mail also quotes Brisbane’s Lord Mayor Campbell Newman who said: “The people have spoken and I think it’s a fitting tribute to a band that helped put Brisbane’s music industry on the map.”
