About the project

As part of the Patrick Lane intersection improvements project, Council undertook works to improve safety for cyclists and other road users travelling inbound at the Land Street and Patrick Lane intersection, as well as the Land Street underpass in Auchenflower and the Bicentennial Bikeway at Western Creek (near the intersection of Lang Parade) in Milton. Council also completed works at the Patrick Lane and Land Street intersection to relocate a traffic signal and install an advanced cyclist detection system.

In mid-December 2019, Council completed final works to install an electronic signage system at both entrances to the Land Street underpass.

The Patrick Lane intersection improvements project is now complete.

The project was part of Council's Better Bikeways 4 Brisbane program, creating dedicated bikeways and active travel options with a $100 million investment over four years from 2016-20.

Patrick Lane and Land Street intersection, Auchenflower

Work at this intersection improved safety for cyclists travelling inbound on Land Street, towards the Wesley Hospital and Bicentennial Bikeway. Works involved:

  • reconfiguring the traffic lanes on Land Street, to provide one dedicated left-turn lane, and one through traffic lane (the dedicated right-turn lane will remain)
  • installing dedicated bicycle traffic lights and adjusting the traffic signal phasing to separate cyclists continuing straight from left turning vehicles
  • installing 30 metres of safe cycle separators to separate the on-road bicycle lane and the adjacent lane
  • extending the green pavement treatment along 30 metres of the on-road bicycle lane 
  • updating pavement markings.

Following feedback from the community, Council also undertook additional works at the intersection of Patrick Lane and Land Street to improve safety for cyclists and other road users. Works included relocating the traffic signal on the south-western corner of the intersection closer to the road to further improve visibility for all road users. An advance detection system for cyclists was also installed on the new traffic signal to improve cyclist detection and reduce wait times for cyclists at this intersection.

Land Street underpass, Auchenflower

Improvement works on approaches to, and inside, the Land Street underpass, improved safety for cyclists and pedestrians and included:

  • upgrading pavement markings to better direct cyclist and pedestrian traffic, and minimise potential conflicts
  • installing directional signage and speed limit signage at the underpass entrance on Bicentennial Bikeway.

Additional works - installation of the electronic signage system

Works to install the electronic signage system at the Land Street underpass are now complete. This signage system provides advanced warning of pedestrians and cyclists in the underpass to improve safety for all pathway users.

Works to install the electronic signage system involved:

  • installing electronic signage at each end of the underpass to advise cyclists to slow down if travelling too fast and provide advance warning of pedestrians and cyclists in the underpass
  • installing a sensor system at each end of the underpass to detect cyclists and pedestrians 
  • installing new conduit and cables to connect the electronic signage system.

Bicentennial Bikeway at Western Creek, Milton

Improvement works at the Bicentennial Bikeway at Western Creek improved safety for cyclists and pedestrians, particularly at the intersection of the bikeway and the pedestrian underpass near Lang Parade. Works involved:

  • removal of existing pavement markings
  • installing new pavement marking and signage to better direct cyclist and pedestrian traffic and minimise potential conflicts.

Project benefits

The Patrick Lane intersection improvements project improved safety for all road and bikeway users at the Patrick Lane and Land Street intersection and Land Street underpass in Auchenflower and Bicentennial Bikeway at Western Creek in Milton.
