About the project

The Moreton Bay Cycleway - Elanora Park to Export Street project forms an important missing link in the Moreton Bay Cycleway. This cycleway runs along Wynnum North Road, Wynnum, and Pritchard Street, Lytton. The Moreton Bay Cycleway network, once complete, will connect Redland Bay through to Redcliffe via the Gateway Motorway with a high-quality cycling facility.

End of construction - stage 1 and part of stage 3

Council is pleased to advise stage 1 of the Moreton Bay Cycleway – Elanora Park to Export Street project in Wynnum was completed in late 2018.

This involved the construction of a three-metre-wide shared path on the western side of Wynnum North Road, connecting the Moreton Bay Cycleway in Elanora Park to Pritchard Street.

Council can also advise that significant progress has been made on stage 3 of this project, with the completion of a 1.2km off-road bike path along Pritchard Street from the Port of Brisbane Railway line back to Wynnum North Road.

While the majority of stage 3 works have been undertaken, Council is continuing to liaise with Queensland Rail to determine the construction of the railway crossing and area to the west of the crossing. Cyclists are required to share the road to cross the Port of Brisbane rail line until this section is completed.

More information about construction of the rail crossing will be provided to the community when available.

Council would like to thank residents for their patience and cooperation during the construction period.

Construction commenced in June 2018 and was completed in late 2018.

Project background

Stage 1 involved the construction of a three-metre-wide shared path on the western side of Wynnum North Road, connecting the Moreton Bay Cycleway in Elanora Park to Pritchard Street.

As you may be aware, the design of stage 1 was altered twice to accommodate community feedback.

In April 2017, Council announced the first altered design of the cycleway on Wynnum North Road due to discovering an area of cultural significance on the embankment on the western side of the road.

In April 2018 Council announced the second altered design to include the construction of an off-road path on the western side of Wynnum North Road.

Construction commenced in June 2018 and was completed in late 2018.

Stage 2, which was constructed in July 2017, involved constructing a bikeway along Pritchard Street, from the off-road bikeway at the Export Street intersection to the Port of Brisbane rail line.

Stage 3 involved the continuation of approximately a 1.2km off-road bike path along Pritchard Street from the Port of Brisbane Railway line back to Wynnum North Road.

The significance of the trees on Pritchard Street to the local community was a key factor in determining the final alignment of stage 3. The bikeway has been constructed around the significant trees on Pritchard Street and onto Port of Brisbane-owned land.

This project was jointly funded by Council and the Queensland Government’s Cycle Network Local Government Grants program, with the state government contributing 50 percent funding.
