About the project

The Kangaroo Point Riverwalk is a busy pedestrian and cyclist link which runs along the Brisbane River between Amesbury Street and Thornton Street.

As part of Council’s maintenance program, inspections of the riverwalk highlighted various parts of the structure which have reached their expected lifespan and need to be replaced.

These sections will be replaced with fibre-composite material to extend the life of the walkway.

These works will include:

  • Replacing current timber decking with fibre-composite material
  • Minor repairs to structural elements.

Project Timing

The project will be carried out in two stages between September 2021 and March 2022, weather and construction conditions permitting.

Works will be generally be undertaken between 6.30am and 5pm Monday to Friday, however, some works may also be required between 6.30am and 5pm on Saturdays.

Impacts during works

Construction noise

Residents and businesses near the project site may experience some noise from construction activities during work hours. All efforts will be made by Council to minimise these impacts.

Access changes

During these works the riverwalk will be partially closed in small sections periodically and access will be narrowed. However, the riverwalk will remain open for the duration of works.

Cyclists may be advised to dismount during some of the works.

A temporary site facility will also be established in C.T White Park for the duration of the project.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation while these important works are undertaken.
