King tides this weekend

King tides this weekend will mean some bikeways in the city and suburbs may be underwater.

The highest tide will be 2.55 m at the Brisbane Bar (near the mouth of the river) at 9:39 am Monday, which should mean tides peaking around 1.6–1.7 m at 10:14 am at the Brisbane City Gauge (in the CBD), and a slightly lower peak at 9:31 am Sunday.

This isn’t expected to be as bad as last year’s king tide (or the really high tide just after that), but be aware that many of the bikeways that are usually susceptible are likely to be flooded.

If you have observations about which bikeways do or do not go under water at particular river heights please let us know, as we’d like to gather the data and be able to offer more specific advice about which bikeways are likely to be affected by future tides.
