About the project

The Indooroopilly Riverwalk project will provide a safer connection for cyclists and pedestrians with approximately 790 metres of new infrastructure between Witton Road (near Twigg Street) to Witton Barracks. The riverwalk will also provide connections to Radnor Street and Riverview Terrace.

This project will create a high quality, connected and accessible facility for residents and visitors of Brisbane's western suburbs. It will also form part of a future bikeway corridor between the Western Freeway Bikeway and the University of Queensland (UQ).

The project was previously communicated as the Indooroopilly Bikeway (Radnor Street): Stage 1 project and was originally planned to be delivered in two stages, with Stage 1 to be delivered in 2019 and Stage 2 to be delivered at a later date, subject to funding.

In mid-2018, Council undertook a series of public consultation activities and after considering community feedback, has decided to merge the two stages and deliver them as the Indooroopilly Riverwalk.

Project design

The project will include:

  • constructing 790 metres of new pathways including a 600-metre-long, five-metre-wide separated riverwalk for pedestrians and cyclists
  • a shared connection to Foxton Street from the riverwalk
  • a design that is flood resilient
  • upgrading the Foxton Street and Radnor Street intersection to create a safer environment for all road users
  • a dedicated pedestrian connection to Riverview Terrace
  • a viewing platform on the riverwalk overlooking the Brisbane River
  • lighting along the length of the riverwalk
  • landscaping and wayfinding signage.

Benefits

The project will benefit the community by:

  • providing a high quality, connected and accessible facility for the community
  • improving safety for pedestrians and cyclists with a separated off-road facility and new pathway connections
  • promoting an active and healthy lifestyle by encouraging more walking and cycling
  • providing a critical part of a future bikeway corridor between the Western Freeway Bikeway and UQ.

Project timing

Council is finalising the design over the coming months and will provide an update as more information is available. Construction is anticipated to start from early 2020.
