2022 weather event impacts

Council is assessing and restoring Brisbane’s extensive bikeway network following damage caused by the recent flood event.

While these assessments are ongoing, we are also conducting cleaning and immediate works to ensure our bikeways are safe and, establishing detours in areas where the bikeways have been critically damaged.

Following cleaning and make safe works, many sections of our bikeway network are reopening. Some sections of our bikeway network were critically damaged and must remain closed until restoration works can be completed. We ask the community to please not access damaged sections of bikeways for their own and others safety.

We are working to restore our bikeway network as soon as possible.

Central

Bicentennial Bikeway - Graham Street to Lang Parade

Following the partial removal of the Drift Restaurant by the Queensland Government, the final section of the bikeway between Graham Street and Lang Parade has reopened as a temporary, minimum three-metre-wide, shared zone for people walking and riding.

Works are still underway by the Queensland Government to remove the remaining portion of the Drift Restaurant.

This section (between Graham Street and Lang Parade) will remain as a temporary shared zone until the Drift Restaurant is completely removed, debris cleaned, and assessments completed on the remaining section of pathway nearest to the river.

As this is now a temporary shared zone, people walking and riding are reminded to take care and share the pathway safely. Signage will be in place at the shared zone to remind people to slow down when travelling along this section of the bikeway.

People walking are also able to use the existing footpath on the western side of Coronation Drive, which can be accessed via the ramps at Graham Street or Lang Parade.

Bicentennial Bikeway - between 1 William Street and Victoria Bridge

The Bicentennial Bikeway has re-opened between the Regatta Ferry Terminal and Victoria Bridge, and 1 William Street and the Goodwill Bridge. It remains temporarily closed for cleaning by Queen’s Wharf Brisbane between 1 William Street and the Victoria Bridge. Some sections may require more minor cleaning, so please follow traffic control and signage on site.

Bicentennial Bikeway - Queen's Wharf Brisbane construction

The Bicentennial Bikeway is currently reduced to a three-metre wide shared pathway south of the North Quay ferry terminal for approximately 200 metres to enable construction work for the Queen's Wharf Brisbane. 

The Bicentennial Bikeway will remain open during this time, but intermittent stop-and-go traffic control will be in place Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm for construction work. This will be in place until mid-2022.

Kedron Brook Bikeway

The Kedron Brook Bikeway remains closed in sections, including:

  • the crossing near Wolverhampton Street, Stafford and Leyton Street, Grange
  • in Corbett Park near Uxbridge Street
  • at Walter Bourke Park bridge, Lutwyche/Gordon Park.
Restoration works - Royal Parade crossing

Initial restoration works at the Kedron Brook Bikeway crossing between Royal Parade and Stafford City Shopping Centre are now complete and the crossing reopened on Friday 10 June 2022.

Given the extent and complexity of damage at this location we will be returning in the coming months to complete additional landscaping around the creek crossing. Council will continue to investigate improvement opportunities at this location into the future.

Initial works commenced in early April 2022 and included:

  • detailed assessments and repair of the existing bridge structure
  •  reinstatement of the original flow of the creek
  • reconstruction of the connecting pathways
  • final inspection of the pedestrian bridge and nearby pathways.

We have previously safely re-opened the pathway connecting Shand Street and Stafford City Shopping Centre. The creek crossing and all remaining works to reconstruct connecting pathways and make the area safe have been completed and the crossing has been reopened restoring this critical link.

Information about further works in this location will be released in coming months.

Shand Street shared path

The shared path along Shand Street is currently closed between Sheehy Street and the bridge over the Kedron Brook, following a landslip that occurred during the 2022 severe weather event.

A detour is in place through Grinstead Park on the other side of Shand Street. For your safety, please follow detour signage.

Initial inspections by our geotechnical experts have revealed that to reopen the footpath, more than simple clean up works are required.

We need to complete the design and construction of an engineered stabilisation solution before the footpath can be reopened.

Construction is expected to start from early 2023. We appreciate the community’s patience and their continued use of the detour while the footpath remains closed.

Amazon Place Park, Jindalee

Hanlon Park Rejuvenation Project, Stones Corner

The Norman Creek 2012-2031 Master Plan identified an opportunity for Hanlon Park in the Stones Corner Precinct to be transformed into an attractive and versatile public space, enhancing connectivity and recreation opportunities for residents, businesses, commuters and visitors.

Construction works have begun and as such the pedestrian and bike path between O’Keefe Street and Cornwall Street will remain closed until late-2021.

Signed detours are in place to assist cyclists and pedestrians.
