About the project

This new shared path will improve connectivity and recreational opportunities for the local community.

The shared path connects Joachim Street to the Veloway 1 bikeway via Birdwood Road, through the existing desire line in Joachim Street Park. It also provides a new connection for people walking to recreational facilities such as the new pickleball courts, or public transport options nearby.

A section of the shared path near Birdwood Road has been completed in asphalt. The asphalt is temporary and will remain in place until a permanent connection to the Veloway 1 bikeway is finalised by the Department of Transport and Main Roads.

Active travel is a great way to stay active and healthy, enjoy our green areas and reduce traffic congestion, and we know more people choose to walk and ride each year.

This project is part of our commitment to expand Brisbane’s active travel network and create safe, convenient and connected sustainable travel options for the community to enjoy.

Project features

The Joachim Street Park shared path includes:

  • 270 metre-long, 3 metre-wide shared path through Joachim Street Park
  • new traffic island and yellow no stopping lines on Joachim Street to improve sightlines and safety for people entering/exiting the path
