Brisbane City Council has provided another official update on the state of flood-affected bikeways around the city this afternoon:
Council is pleased to announce that a majority of bikeways affected by the flood have been repaired and are now open for use.
However Council is asking residents to take care on all bikeways as localised sections may still require minor cleaning or repairs to the bikeway paving.
In addition, pathway lighting damaged during the floods has not been restored at all locations, so please take care when using the pathways at night.
The inner city and CBD pathways still affected by temporary closures include: City Reach Boardwalk, Cultural Centre Boardwalk, Southbank Promenade and Riverside Drive at West End.
The floating Riverwalk at New Farm has been extensively damaged, with some sections of the walkway washed away. This facility will be closed for a significant period. Short term alternative pedestrian and cycle routes have been identified along Moray Street, Bowen Terrace, Ivory Lane, and Boundary Street.
With current diversions in place pedestrians and cyclists will need to exercise caution when sharing narrow pathways and footpaths. Cyclists are reminded to slow down and sound their bell when approaching pedestrians to warn they are about to pass them on the right. Pedestrians, when you hear a cyclist’s bell, walk in single file as close to the left as possible.
Damaged or blocked pathways can be reported to Brisbane City Council via Council’s Contact Centre on 07 3403 8888. This will enable Council’s maintenance teams to be advised and appropriate remedial work or cleaning undertaken.
