Brisbane City - Bicentennial Bikeway

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.

Brisbane City - Go Between Bridge Bikeway

The construction of the Go Between Bridge Bikeway improvements project will start in mid-September 2019 and will take approximately three weeks to complete, weather and site conditions permitting.

This project will involve upgrading the existing balustrade by installing a bicycle-friendly top rail. as well as the installation of galvanised woven steel mesh along 54 metres of the outside curve of the bikeway. The project will improve safety for cyclists accessing the local network and amenities.

For the safety of workers and cyclists, the majority of works will be undertaken between 6pm and 5am, Sunday to Thursday, weather permitting. The work is being undertaken at night to minimise disruption to bikeway users.

The works will require some temporary lane closures and may require detours for cyclists. Signage will be in place to direct cyclists.

Newstead - Mariners Reach Riveralk

The Mariners Reach Riverwalk, between Newstead Avenue and Evelyn Street, Newstead was identified to be deteriorating due to corrosion. Works are required to enhance the life of the riverwalk and ensure it remains safe and serviceable for the benefit of all users.

Works will generally be undertaken on site between the hours of 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. When necessary, works may also be undertaken on Saturday between 7am and 5pm where tide conditions are favourable. Council will provide notification ahead of such works.

A detour for cyclists and pedestrians will be in place during the riverwalk closure. Signs will be placed along the detour route to direct cyclist and pedestrian traffic. Where necessary, traffic controllers will be in place along the detour to help facilitate safe crossings.

For further information, about the Mariners Reach riverwalk rehabilitation project phone the project team on 1800 669 416 or email the project team. For information outside of business hours, phone Council on 07 3403 8888.

Spring Hill - North Brisbane Bikeway

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.
