Cycle infrastructure projects

A man riding along the North Brisbane BikewayThe Queensland Government’s vision for cycling, as set out in the Queensland Cycling Strategy 2017-2027, is for more cycling, more often. We will continue to invest in the highest priority connections on principal cycle networks across Queensland to make cycling safer and more convenient for everyone. Some key cycling projects are below.

Veloway 1 (V1) Cycleway

The Veloway 1 (V1) is planned to connect cyclists from Brisbane city to the Gateway Motorway off-ramp at Eight Mile Plains (along Pacific Motorway). A dedicated 3m wide cycleway will extend 17km, providing a safe route for commuting cyclists. The Veloway is being delivered in 5 stages - check the Veloway project page for further information.

North Brisbane Bikeway

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 in stages - check the North Brisbane Bikeway project page for further information. 

Bohle River Bridge

This project will provide a shared cycle and pedestrian bridge across the Bohle River in Townsville along North Townsville Road (connecting to the Bruce Highway) This will provide an active transport link between the growing Northern Beaches community to the Townsville CBD.

Mackay Slade Point Road Cycle Path, Stage 1

This project will provide an off-road shared cycle path on Mackay - Slade Point Road, connecting the existing path in Harbour Road to the access roads to the Port and Marina. Mackay – Slade Point Road (Harbour Road) is a popular cycling route connecting Mackay CBD to the city’s principal recreational beach, marina development and restaurant precinct at the Mackay Harbour, and to the residential areas at Slade Point / Lamberts Beach.
