About the project

The Indooroopilly Bikeway project will complete a missing link in the bikeway network, providing a connection for cyclists and pedestrians between the Western Freeway and the University of Queensland.

Council is planning to deliver Stage 1 of this project as part of the Better Bikeways for Brisbane program, creating dedicated bikeways and active travel options with a $100 million investment from 2016 to 2020. Stage 1 will connect Witton Road, at the corner of Twigg Street, and to Radnor Street, near Foxton Street, including a short pedestrian connection to Riverview Terrace.

The project aims to provide a safe connection for cyclists and pedestrians and create a high quality, connected, accessible recreation and commuter route for Brisbane residents.

Council will deliver the project in stages. Stage 2 will extend the first stage, under the Walter Taylor Bridge and connect to the Witton Barracks on the eastern side, at the existing Jack Pesch Bikeway. Stage 2 will be delivered as a separate future project, when funding becomes available. 

The proposed preliminary design will improve safety and accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists and includes:

  • a new 5 metre shared pathway with separate facilities for pedestrians and cyclists
  • connections to Foxton Street and Riverview Terrace
  • upgrading the Foxton Street/Radnor Street intersection
  • lighting along the length of the pathway
  • landscaping and wayfinding signage.

Community consultation

The preliminary design is open for feedback from Monday 14 May to Sunday 3 June 2018. Feedback can be provided by contacting the project team on 1800 010 705 (during business hours), emailing the project team, completing an online survey or in writing

Council will be holding information sessions during May to give the local community the opportunity to talk to the project team and provide feedback on the preliminary design.

  • Thursday 24 May 2018, 7-9am at Witton Barracks
  • Saturday 26 May 2018, 9-11am at Indooroopilly Shopping Centre (level 3, outside the Food Court)
  • Thursday 31 May 2018, 3.30-5.30pm at Witton Barracks

Feedback received during consultation will assist Council to refine and finalise the project design, prior to construction commencing in early 2019.

Benefits

The project will benefit the community by:

  • creating a high quality, connected and accessible recreation and commuter route for residents of the western suburbs of Brisbane
  • forming a key between the Western Freeway and The University of Queensland and connecting to the Brisbane River Loop bikeway
  • encouraging  commuter and recreational walking and cycling
  • enhancing lifestyle and leisure opportunities for residents in the area
  • improving safety, connectivity and visibility for cyclists and pedestrians.
