About the project
The project has provided wider pathway entrances for all users and improved accessibility and safety. This project is part of our commitment to expand our city’s active transport network to deliver safe, convenient and connected pathways for Brisbane residents, visitors and commuters.
Riding and walking are great ways for residents to stay active and healthy, enjoy our natural area and reduce traffic congestion.
As part of these works, we:
- constructed new kerb ramp entries for the shared path and footpath at the Paragon Street end of the park
- upgraded the shared path kerb ramp at the Stevens Street end of the park
- widened the shared path entries at both ends of the park to three metres wide, transitioning into the existing 2.5-metre-wide path
- installed new safety bollards at the Stevens Street end of the shared path
- constructed a new 1.2 metre-wide pedestrian path entry on Paragon Street
- modified the footpath alignment on Paragon Street to accommodate the upgraded kerb ramps
- completed minor turfing works to the surrounding area.
Two trees near Paragon Street were removed for this project.
Replanting has occurred within Lloyd Rees Park to ensure that we keep our suburbs cooler and greener.
