Finalisation of preliminary design underway. Detailed design expected to be released towards the end of 2017.

About the project

The Woolloongabba Bikeway project is part of Council’s Better Bikeways for Brisbane program, creating new lifestyle and leisure opportunities through dedicated bikeways and active travel options with a $100 million investment.

This project will provide a safe corridor for cyclists travelling along Annerley Road and Stanley Street in both directions.

The project extends 1.1 kilometres along Stanley Street between Ipswich Road, Woolloongabba and Dock Street, South Brisbane, and 1.4 kilometres along Annerley Road between Stanley Street, Woolloongabba and Gladstone Road, Dutton Park.

The project aims to provide a safer environment for all road users through the delivery of dedicated cycle facilities. 

This will involve:

  • installing a separated cycleway along Stanley Street, from Ipswich Road, Woolloongabba, to Dock Street, South Brisbane
  • installing an additional 240 metre section of separated bikeway on the western side of Annerley Road, between Stanley Street and Clarence Street
  • removing the existing signalised pedestrian crossing on Annerley Road (located approximately 150m south of the Annerley Road and Stanley Street intersection) and replacing it with and a new signalised intersection at Annerley Road, Clarence Street and Catherine Street
  • installing on-road bike lanes on both sides of Annerley Road, from Clarence Street to the intersection of Gladstone Road, Dutton Park
  • modifying a number of intersections on both Annerley Road and Stanley Street to enhance travel flow efficiency such as removing right turns
  • closing Merton Road at Stanley Street to improve cyclist safety
  • installing signals on Trinity Lane at the Stanley Street intersection
  • closing the on-ramp to the South East Freeway from Stanley Street
  • reconfiguring some bus stops to reduce conflicts between cyclists and buses including installing three floating bus stops.

Additional project features including landscaping will be further refined as design for the bikeway progresses.

The Woolloongabba Bikeway project will also involve removing some on-street parking, loading zones and taxi ranks on Stanley Street and Annerley Road to achieve dedicated cycling facilities.

As part of the project Council is also considering potential CityCycle locations including near the Merton Road and Stanley Street intersection, Reid Street and Stanley Street intersection and Gloucester Street and Annerley Road intersection.

Project timing

Council will continue to engage with local residents, businesses and interest groups as the project progresses and more information is available.

Council expects detailed design to be completed towards the end of 2017 with construction anticipated to be undertaken from early 2018 and late 2018, weather permitting.

Project benefits

  • a safe corridor for cyclists travelling along Annerley Road and Stanley Street in both directions.
  • improved safety for all road users.
  • enhanced connectivity to the local bikeway network.
