About the project
We are undertaking an active travel study between Vulture Street, Boundary Street and Melbourne Street.
This study includes looking at potential connections to Melbourne Street, South Brisbane where active transport improvements are planned as part of the Brisbane Metro project.
The focus of the study is to understand experiences and potential opportunities for active travel in the area and understand how, why and when you travel.
This review is part of our ongoing commitment to expand our city’s active transport network to deliver safe, convenient and connected paths and help to improve active transport options for Brisbane residents, visitors and commuters.
This planning study is an initiative of the Queensland Government.
Community consultation – late 2022
As part of this study, it is important to understand community experiences and potential opportunities for active travel in this area.
We invited the community to have their say in late 2022 as part of the South Brisbane active travel study between Vulture Street, Boundary Street and Melbourne Street.
We received valuable feedback from residents, commuters and community members during the consultation period. Thank you to everyone who took the time and provided their feedback.
There were 410 online surveys completed and 356 pins placed on the map tool.
Highlights from the community consultation:
- interest in improving cyclist and pedestrian connectivity
- interest in improving safety for cyclists and pedestrians
- reducing speeds through the study area
- improving crossing points, wayfinding and signage.
- 72% of respondents travel through the study area by walking, running or mobility device
- 64% travel through the study area via bus
- 62% travel through the study area via bicycle.
Top items respondents liked most about their active travel experience:
- separated facilities for people walking and riding (76%)
