Metropolitan Region

Project info

The V1 has been divided into 5 stages, with 3 of these stages already complete and in use. The Veloway 1 map shows construction progress  of each stage.

Stage D Section 3 is currently under construction with major bridge works due to begin over Cornwall Street, Greenslopes. Expected completion is in late 2017, weather and construction conditions permitting.

Night works will begin Tuesday 15 August 2017 for approximately 4 weeks between 7pm and 5am.  Taking place alongside Marquis Street and over the intersection of Cornwall Street and Marquis Street, Greenslopes, works are expected to take place from Monday to Saturday, weather and construction conditions permitting. Works have been broken into 2 stages:

  • Stage 1—delivery and installation of steel bridge trusses and assembly and dismantling of cranes.
  • Stage 2—delivery and laying of concrete decking, and general bridge works.

Works will be undertaken at night to ensure the safety of road users and work crews, and to minimise impacts to the road network. Every effort will be made to minimise impacts on the local community and we appreciate your patience and cooperation while these important works are carried out. 

Construction impacts for residents during these works

Residents will experience increased lighting and noise from equipment, heavy vehicles and construction activities. This will include reversing beepers and flashing lights. 

Traffic impacts for residents and motorists

During these works the following closures will be in place:

  • Intermittent Cornwall Street off-ramp closure from the Pacific Motorway southbound.
  • Intermittent full and partial closure of Cornwall Street and Marquis Street intersection underneath the Pacific Motorway.
  • Full road closure on Marquis Street - between Cornwall Street and Juliette Street only.
  • Marquis Street and Cornwall Street properties - diversions and changed access will be in place. Traffic controllers will be onsite to assist residents entering and exiting their properties:
    • Marquis Street residents (between Cornwall Street and Juliette Street only) will need to enter their properties via Juliette Street.
    • Cornwall Street residents (between Earl Street/Junction Street and Marquis Street only) will need to enter their properties from Earl Street or Junction Street.
  • Slight bus route diversions. Diversions should not impact schedules or bus stops. However, passengers are advised to check TransLink’s Journey planner for travel updates.

Detour signage and traffic controllers will be on site during all stages of the works to direct residents and traffic when required.
