Part of the cycle route through South Bank will be affected by construction for approximately five weeks from Monday, 28 March. The affected section is at the Goodwill Bridge end of the parklands, and will be closed to pedestrians for the duration. Cyclists will be able to continue using the path but it will be narrowed and cyclists will need to take care. South Bank Corporation is recommending that cyclists dismount.
On completion the riverside path (Clem Jones Promenade) will extend right up to the Goodwill Bridge, and this will be the preferred cycle route.

A section of the South Bank Arbour will be temporarily closed to pedestrians between The Ship Inn and Decks Restaurant from Monday 28 March for approximately five weeks (please see map on reverse).
This section of the Arbour will be open to bicycle traffic only for this period.
Pedestrians will have alternative access via the path near Mado’s and Timmy’s restaurant and the Griffith University campus.
Due to changed conditions and narrowing of the path, cyclists are recommended to slow down and dismount.
The changed traffic conditions will be in place for the safety of both pedestrians and cyclists. Please follow the direction of traffic controllers and signage.
This work relates to the final stages of construction of South Bank’s newest riverfront dining precinct.
Once complete, the project will include an extension of the Clem Jones Promenade through to Sidon Street, this will become the new bicycle access, returning the Arbour to pedestrian traffic only.
