About the project

The Idonia Street creek crossing project included construction of a new three-metre-wide shared concrete path to connect Idonia Street with the existing Cabbage Tree Creek Bikeway via a low-level culvert crossing over Cabbage Tree Creek.

The project improves active transport through the area by providing a safe and accessible route over Cabbage Tree Creek, and provides an additional access point from Bridgeman Downs to the popular Cabbage Tree Creek Bikeway.

The Idonia Street crossing is part of Council’s ongoing program to improve access and connectivity by delivering new bridges and upgraded crossing facilities across creeks throughout Brisbane.

Works for the project involved:

  • construction of a new three-metre-wide shared concrete path to connect Idonia Street with the existing Cabbage Tree Creek Bikeway
  • the installation of five reinforced concrete box culverts approximately 2.7 metres long x 1.4 metres wide to create a crossing point over Cabbage Tree Creek
  • grading of the embankment from Idonia Street down to the creek
  • the installation of solar lighting at the culvert crossing
  • earthworks, concrete and landscaping works.

Timing

Works commenced mid-April 2021 and were completed in early August 2021.

Council would like to thank the local community for their patience and understanding while these important works were completed.
