Bicentennial Bikeway - Brisbane City

Destination Brisbane Consortium will be upgrading more than one kilometre of riverfront between the Goodwill Bridge and Victoria Bridge for the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane development. Works include improving the Bicentennial Bikeway and construction of the Mangrove Walk, a new scenic walk over the river.

To enable this construction, from June-2018 to mid-2019 the Bicentennial Bikeway will be temporarily closed between the Goodwill Bridge and the area behind 1 William Street.

Bicentennial Bikeway users will be diverted along Gardens Point Road to connect between the Goodwill Bridge and Bicentennial Bikeway near Margaret Street.

For more information, visit the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane website, email Queen's Wharf Brisbane or phone 1800 104 535 (toll free).

North Brisbane Bikeway - Spring Hill

Council is undertaking works to upgrade lighting along the North Brisbane bikeway from College Road to Victoria Park, Spring Hill.

This project will involve installing new LED lighting along an existing section of the bikeway behind the Brisbane Boys Grammar school and Brisbane Girls Grammar School, between College Road and Victoria Park, Spring Hill. The existing concrete path will also be upgraded where possible, to provide a wider pathway, which will improve safety for both cyclists and pedestrians.

Works will be undertaken in two stages to minimise the impact on both cyclists and pedestrians. Stage one was undertaken from June to July 2018. Stage two started in mid-May 2019 is and is expected to be complete in July 2019, weather and construction conditions permitting.

If you have any questions or would like to receive project updates, contact the project team on 1800 884 681 or email the bikeway projects team
