Brisbane City Council’s extensive bikeway and pathway projects align with the Transport Plan for Brisbane – Strategic Directions to plan and deliver a network of accessible walking and cycling paths to encourage more active lifestyle choices. The network improves access to local destinations and the CBD and helps to minimise traffic congestion. Use this page to find out about current bikeway and pathway projects.

Through the Better Bikeways 4 Brisbane program, Brisbane City Council is investing $100 million over four years from July 2016. Council’s investment of $220 million since 2008 has improved cycling networks across our city. Learn more about completed bikeway and pathway projects across Brisbane.
