Cycle infrastructure projects
The Department of Transport and Main Roads is setting a new direction for cycling to change the way people travel, to get more people cycling, more often.
Through the Queensland Cycle Strategy 2011–2021, we aim to double cycling's share of commuter trips to work by 2021, and triple this by 2031.
A key component to achieving this is through investment in cycling infrastructure. We provide cycling infrastructure and facilities in road upgrades on priority cycle routes to expand Queensland's cycle network.
Some of the key cycling projects are below.
Veloway 1 (V1) Cycleway
The department is delivering the next stages of the Veloway 1 (V1) Cycleway from Brisbane city to the Gateway Motorway off-ramp at Eight Mile Plains.
This important connection will provide a safe dedicated route for commuting cyclists and is being delivered in stages over the next 5 years.
The department is partnering with Brisbane City Council to upgrade Brisbane’s busiest shared pathway, the Bicentennial bikeway. The bikeway carries over 4000 pedestrians and cyclists daily and is an important cycle and pedestrian link along the Brisbane River that connects the CBD to Toowong.
The Bicentennial bikeway is being delivered in stages and is due for completion in 2013.
David Low Way Cycle Facilities
This $3 million project will construct cycle facilities along David Low Way between Petrie Creek and Maroochy River and Williams Street and Emu Mountain Road.
These facilities will provide safe access for cyclists along one of the most highly used commuter routes in the Sunshine Coast region.
