Veloway 1 (V1) Cycleway, O'Keefe Street, construct cycle bridge and approaches

The Veloway 1 (V1) is a dedicated cycleway running between Lower River Terrace, South Brisbane and Eight Mile Plains. The V1 O'Keefe Street velobridge will improve safety, traffic flow and network connectivity.

Several crossings on the V1 have been identified as opportunities to improve network connectivity and user safety. The O'Keefe Street crossing has been prioritised, as the current alignment is indirect and includes intersections without traffic signals.

Construction of the velobridge will allow bike riders to stay on the V1, instead of crossing at Carl Street and the lights both east and west of the Pacific Motorway on O'Keefe Street.

The velobridge will benefit bike riders and motorists by reducing pauses in traffic flow that currently occur when bike riders cross these streets.
