About the Project

The North Brisbane Bikeway: Webster Road to Nevin Street project aims to provide safe and continuous cycle facilities, creating more active transport opportunities for recreation and commuter cyclists on Gympie Road.

This project also extends the popular North Brisbane Bikeway route from Marchant Park at Webster Road, creating a new recreation and commuter route for residents in the northern suburbs and improving access to local destinations and the CBD.

The North Brisbane Bikeway: Webster Road to Nevin Street is an initiative of the Queensland Government. The project is funded by the Queensland Government Works for Queensland grants program and will be delivered by Brisbane City Council.

Project summary

Works for the North Brisbane Bikeway: Webster Road to Nevin Street project started on the Gympie Road service road in April 2021 and were complete late July 2021.

Works involved:

  • installing four new speed platforms, modifying one speed platform and relocating one speed platform on the Ellison Road and the Gympie Road service road
  • installing new traffic islands and landscaped kerb buildouts at key locations on the service road
  • decreasing the speed limit along the service road to 40 km/hr to enhance safety for all road users
  • constructing a three-metre-wide shared path from the end of the service road to Nevin Street
  • constructing a three-metre-wide shared path connection from Webster Road to Ellison Road, via Aspley Lions Club Park
  • changing access from Darwin Street into the service road to left-in only (no right-turn from Darwin Street into the service road)
  • changing the slip lane entrance near the Aspley Motor Inn to allow left and right turns onto the service road
  • upgrading a kerb ramp and section of footpath near the Darwin Street intersection
  • installing line marking and signage.

Gympie Road service road and on-street parking changes

The Gympie Road service road is now a low speed local road that serves as a cycle route and caters to local vehicle traffic.

This design provides a safe environment for cyclists of all experience levels by reducing the speed limit and moderating vehicle speeds with traffic calming devices such as speed platforms, traffic islands and kerb build-outs.

Next steps

Council will continue to investigate options to extend the bikeway from Nevin Street to Robinson Road West, with design and construction dependent on future funding allocation.
