Bicentennial Bikeway – Kurilpa Bridge to Victoria Bridge upgrade

The Bicentennial Bikeway – Kurilpa Bridge to Victoria Bridge upgrade provides an upgraded link for bicycle riders and pedestrians in Brisbane's Central Business District.

We are committed to creating a single integrated transport network accessible to everyone, building prosperity and supporting the development of liveable regions and active cities. 

Planning is now underway for a new separated bicycle and pedestrian walkway on the Bicentennial Bikeway between Kurilpa Bridge and Victoria Bridge. 

The project will upgrade the active transport link and improve connectivity, allowing a significantly improved pedestrian walkway to connect from the Queen's Wharf development to Toowong.

Activities during this phase will include environmental monitoring, engineering investigations and community consultation.  The project’s current planning phase will build on the feasibility study completed in 2019. The aim is to develop a business case based on a preferred solution for upgrading the active transport link and access ramps to either Turbot Street or Ann Street as shown in the project map. It is anticipated the Business Case will be completed in early 2021.
