Riverside Drive Bikeway under Merivale Rail Bridge

Queensland Rail is constructing a walkway on the Merivale Rail Bridge and steps beside the pillar adjacent to the Riverside Drive Bikeway. There may be minor closures of the shared path when equipment and material is moved into place. As well, a temporary detour may be in place due to heavy lifting equipment needing to be in place under the bridge. Traffic controllers will be in place to assist users.

A tree also needs to be trimmed near the rail bridge. This may also require partial closures.

The work will commence on 19 September and completion is anticipated on 21 October, weather permitting. Cyclists and pedestrians are advised to exercise caution while the work is being undertaken.

For further information, phone Steve Hudy, Project Manager, on 0434 610 473.


Moreton Bay Cycleway - Boondall Railway Station to Boondall North Railway Station - bikeway closure and detour

The bikeway from Boondall Railway Station to Boondall North Railway Station will be closed from June 2016 until the end of 2016 due to bridge construction of the Gateway Upgrade North (GUN) project at the Sandgate Road overpass.

An alternative bikeway has been constructed on the northern side of the Gateway Motorway from the Boondall Environment Centre to the existing bikeway that crosses Cabbage Tree Creek to Blackwood Street in Deagon.

Please contact the project team on 1800 607 755 or at for further information.


Jack Pesch Bridge - Chelmer side

Queensland Rail (QR) is undertaking work beside the approach to the bridge on the Chelmer side. Workers are accessing the site by using the shared pathway off Wharf Street and may also be moving equipment and materials to the site at times.

Advance warning signs have been placed on each approach to advise cyclists and pedestrians of the presence of workers.

Cyclists and pedestrians are advised to slow down and watch for any workers at the location.

For further information, contact QR on 13 16 17.
