About the project

Council is developing Stage 1 of the Kangaroo Point Bikeway upgrade project, which is part of Council's Better Bikeways for Brisbane program, creating dedicated bikeways and active travel options with a $100 million investment.

The project has been divided into three stages for delivery purposes. The current preliminary design addresses stage 1a (from Veloway 1 (V1) connection at the Pacific Motorway underpass, South Brisbane to Little Dock Street) and stage 1c (intersection of Dock Street and Vulture Street). Stage 1b (from Dock Street to the Goodwill Bridge) is subject to further investigation and consultation.

Council has identified a need for improvements to this section of the Kangaroo Point Bikeway which is currently too narrow for the high volume of commuter and recreational traffic. To cater for current and future traffic volumes, the project will involve the construction of a bi-directional bikeway ranging in width between three and four metres depending on available space.

The project will provide a safer environment for cyclists and pedestrians and plays an important role in Brisbane's bicycle network connecting Brisbane's Central Business District (CBD) with the southern, south-eastern and eastern suburbs.

The preliminary design includes the following improvements and features:

  • a new four metre wide bi-directional bikeway that extends for 320 metres along Lower River Terrace and Dock Street
  • improvements to pedestrian paths and pedestrian access to existing footpaths
  • new landscaping along sections of the bikeway
  • improved bicycle crossing at the intersection of Lower River Terrace and V1
  • providing a cycling link to the Woolloongabba Bikeway project via an upgraded intersection at Vulture Street and Dock Street.

Stage 1 of the Kangaroo Point Bikeway upgrade will also impact on-street parking along Dock Street and Lower River Terrace to achieve dedicated cycling facilities. Council has worked hard to minimise the loss of on-street parking, however the current design is expected to result in a net loss of around 20 spaces.

Council is holding three information sessions where project team members will be available to discuss the preliminary design, its impact and project benefits.
