Ithaca Creek Bikeway, Red Hill - full bikeway closure

A full closure of the Ithaca Creek Bikeway between Fulcher Road and Nathan Avenue, Red Hill will be in place from mid-January to late February 2017 for redevelopment of the bikeway.

Bikeway users are requested to read advance warning signs which have been placed on each approach to advise cyclists and pedestrians of the works and the suggested detour path.


Bracken Ridge shared pathway closure

From late January 2017 until mid-2017, a section of the shared pathway located alongside the northbound lanes of the Gateway Motorway, between Depot Road, Deagon and John Fisher Drive in Bracken Ridge, will be closed to all users intermittently.

This closure is required to allow construction of the realigned northbound motorway on and off-ramps to Depot Road, upgrades to existing noise barriers and construction of the new shared pathway in this area. For safety reasons, access to the pathway cannot be maintained during this work.

Signed diversions will be in place as required via Depot Road, Quinlan Street, Calogero Drive, Carl Place, Barrett Street, Denham Street and the pathway adjacent to St John Fisher Collage, joining John Fisher Drive.

View the map for this closure on the Queensland Government's Gateway Upgrade North website.

All works are subject to weather and construction conditions. Please contact the project team on 1800 607 755 or for further information.

Enoggera Creek bikeway, Kelvin Grove - partial closure

The Enoggera Creek bikeway bridge is partially closed due to an incident earlier this year. The bikeway bridge remains open to pedestrians and cyclists however width is reduced to half the bridge deck around the site of the incident. Council is working with suppliers towards a long-term solution to repair and re-open the full bridge deck as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Moreton Bay Cycleway - Boondall Train Station to Cabbage Tree Creek bridge - extended temporary shared pathway closure

Due to ongoing bridge construction works on the Gateway Motorway over Sandgate Road/Braun Street and the Shorncliffe rail line, a section of the shared pathway between Boondall Train Station and the Cabbage Tree Creek pedestrian/cycle bridge will remain temporarily closed to all users until late 2017.

A diversion route located alongside the Gateway Motorway, Cabbage Tree Creek and the Bicentennial Road interchange will remain in place for the duration of the pathway closure.

View the map for this close on the Gateway Upgrade North website.

All works are subject to weather and construction conditions.

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.
