Residents advised to take caution on bikeways and pathways
January 29, 2013
Brisbane City Council cautions residents to take care across the city’s entire bikeway and pathway network as a number of bikeways and shared pathways along the Brisbane River and tributaries have been affected by the ongoing severe weather event.
Bikeways and pathways have been affected by debris and silt, with residents urged to take extra caution when using them.
Council has closed the bikeways in New Farm Park and the City Botanic Gardens as a precaution as Council assesses damage to both parks.
Council will assess the need to close other bikeways as the severe weather event continues to unfold.
Where bikeways or shared pathways are closed, pedestrians and cyclists will need to use alternative routes.
Council is asking residents to be patient with bikeway and pathway disruptions while Council focuses on recovery efforts.
Over the next few days, extreme care should continue to be taken using bikeways and shared pathways.
Damaged or blocked pathways can be reported to Brisbane City Council via Council’s Contact Centre on 07 3403 8888.
