About the project

Council is continuing to install lighting in key sections of the bikeway network to enhance safety. This will improve the amenity for all pathway users and minimise traffic congestion. These upgrades will encourage increased walking and cycling in Brisbane.

The Ashridge Road Bikeway lighting project is part of Council’s Better Bikeways for Brisbane program. Council is creating dedicated bikeways and active travel option with a $100 million investment.

Council identified this section of the bikeway for lighting upgrades to improve safety in the community.

Benefits

New LED lighting is being installed along a section of the Edenbrooke bikeway that runs through Ashridge Road Park between Monier Road and Ashridge Road in Darra. The project will improve visibility will assist all pathway users to safely move through the area. An increase in walking and cycling can have a positive impact on the health of the community.

Impacts during construction

Construction works will generally take place from Monday to Saturday, 7am to 5pm. Council may undertake some construction works on Sundays. Council will work diligently to minimise construction impacts. However, properties in close proximity to works may experience some dust and noise during construction. Council will endeavour to keep this disturbance to a minimum where possible. Due to workplace health and safety requirements, Council is unable to switch off reverse beepers from construction vehicles.

The bikeway may have temporary restrictions throughout construction, however detours will be in place to maintain access for pedestrians and cyclists.

Timing

Construction commenced in late April 2019 and is anticipated to be completed in August 2019, weather and construction conditions permitting.
