North Brisbane Bikeway

Overview:

The North Brisbane Bikeway is a critical cycle corridor for greater Brisbane, connecting the CBD through to Chermside. The project is being delivered in partnership with Brisbane City Council, and will encourage more cycling, more often, across all ages.

Location:

Herston, Albion, Windsor and Wooloowin.

Benefits:

Cycling is not just a transport issue - it has significant benefits for health, the environment and tourism, as well as having positive local impacts in connecting communities. A high-quality dedicated bikeway will encourage more cycling and walking, across all ages and abilities. This in turn will mean fewer cars will be on the road.

Separated cycle facilities will reduce the need for interaction between motorists and cyclists on roads, and between cyclists and pedestrians on footpaths. This improves the safety, comfort, amenity and travel time for everyone.

Regions:
Metropolitan Region

Project info

Stages 2 and 3 - The detailed design is nearing completion, with funding committed for construction. Further consultation with the community will be undertaken in late 2018.

Stage 4 – Currently in planning, with funding committed for construction.

Location: Along Dickson Street, Wooloowin from Rigby Street to Price Street.

Further stages

Further stages of the North Brisbane Bikeway connecting Wooloowin to Chermside will be delivered by Brisbane City Council in partnership with the state government.

Priority cycle and pedestrian crossings

A feature of Stages 2 and 3 is the inclusion of priority pedestrian and cycle crossings at a number of intersections. These crossings operate similarly to pedestrian 'zebra' crossings, providing people walking and cycling with priority over vehicles when crossing the street.

The crossings will consist of a raised platform and coloured road surface to identify give way areas and the cycle crossing. Ample space has been provided to allow vehicles to stop safely, clear of the crossing.
