About the project

We released a concept design for the project on 25 October 2021 for a four-week community consultation period, which closed on 19 November 2021.

The consultation sought feedback on various treatments to provide a high-quality active transport facility and complete a critical missing link between the Queensland Government’s North Brisbane Bikeway (NBB) on Dickson Street and the Kedron Brook Bikeway at Jackson Street, via Junction Road.

This included:

  • a dedicated, separated bikeway on Dickson Street and Bonney Avenue, connecting the North Brisbane Bikeway stage 4 at Price Street with Junction Road
  • a green street on Keith, Sydney and Jackson streets, between Junction Road and the Kedron Brook Bikeway, to create a shared, low speed on road active travel route.

Project status

As a result of Brisbane’s devastating floods in February 2022, Council has made the decision to redirect funding and resources to prioritise the rebuilding of roads, bridges, bikeways, parks and sports facilities across Brisbane, helping to ensure flood rebuilding efforts do not take ten years or more to complete.

Several projects including North Brisbane Bikeway: Price Street to Kedron Brook have consequently been cancelled until flood recovery works are complete. Council expects the flood recovery effort to take approximately two years to complete across the city.

While the project is not proceeding at this time, we are committed to working with the Department of Transport and Main Roads on the broader North Brisbane Bikeway network and future active transport connections in this area.

Overview of community consultation

While the project will not be proceeding at this time, the below information are some high-level outcomes from the consultation period.

The project team received more than 1000 submissions from local residents, businesses, commuters and community members during the consultation period.

Overall, the feedback received on this project was valuable and supportive of improving safety and connectivity for walkers, riders and drivers.

There were 801 online surveys completed, 62 feedback forms completed during two information sessions, 81 email submissions, 36 phone calls to the project hotline and 40 Lord Mayoral submissions.

Of the feedback received, more than 60% of responders indicated agreement towards the project. 

The top five most important project elements for survey respondents were:

  • connecting the North Brisbane Bikeway and Kedron Brook Bikeway
  • improved safety for bike riders and e-mobility users
  • connectivity to existing walking and cycling path network
  • improved safety for people walking on the footpath by creating a designed active travel route away from the footpath
  • providing a separated active travel facility on Dickson Street.

All feedback received has been carefully considered as part of the engagement process.
