Kangaroo Point Bikeway upgrade: stage 1 (Goodwill Bridge to Veloway 1) - South Brisbane

Brisbane City Council is pleased to advise the detailed design for stage 1A of the Kangaroo Point Bikeway upgrade project has been completed. Construction will begin in June 2018 and be completed by late 2018. This stage extends along Lower River Terrace from the Veloway 1 (V1) connection at the Pacific Motorway underpass to the intersection of Dock Street and Little Dock Street.

The Kangaroo Point Bikeway upgrade – stage 1 project is being constructed in stages for delivery purposes. Details on the construction of stage 1B, which will extend along Little Dock Street from the intersection with Dock Street to the Goodwill Bridge, and stage 1C, which will upgrade the Dock Street and Vulture Street intersection to connect the Woolloongabba and Kangaroo Point Bikeways will be released to the community in the coming months.

About the project

The Kangaroo Point Bikeway upgrade project is part of Council’s Better Bikeways for Brisbane program, reducing traffic congestion through dedicated bikeways and active travel options with a $100 million investment.

This investment is not aimed only at providing safer access for those who currently cycle, but also to significantly boost the number of people cycling.

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.

This project will benefit not only cyclists, but also pedestrians and motorists by reducing conflicts between these different modes of travel.

Stage 1A

The detailed design for stage 1A includes the following improvements and features:

  • a new four metre-e from the V1 to the intersection of Little Dock Street and Dock Street
  • new landscaping and tree planting along sections of the bikeway
  • improved bicycle crossing at the intersection of Lower River Terrace and the V1.

The Kangaroo Point Bikeway upgrade stage 1A will result in changes to on-street parking and loading zones as well as some tree removal along Dock Street and Lower River Terrace to achieve these dedicated cycling facilities. The project team considered several different options to minimise parking loss and vegetation impacts as much as possible. The option presented to the community is the best option to improve safety for all users of the park and Lower River Terrace, which has the least impact on the area for local residents, visitors and the general public. Following community feedback regarding vehicle speed along Lower River Terrace, the design now incorporates additional traffic calming devices to reduce speed and improve safety along the road.

Stages 1B and 1C

As previously advised, the Kangaroo Point Bikeway upgrade – stage 1 project is being constructed in stages for delivery purposes. Details on the construction of stage 1B, which will extend along Little Dock Street from the intersection with Dock Street to the Goodwill Bridge, and stage 1C, which will upgrade the Dock Street and Vulture Street intersection to connect the Woolloongabba and Kangaroo Point Bikeways will be released to the community in the coming months.
