Bicentennial Bikeway

The Bicentennial Bikeway is being upgraded in stages, from a generally 3.0–3.5 metre wide shared path to a generally 3.5 metre wide dedicated bike path with a separate 2.0 metre wide pedestrian path. Although this will be of great benefit cyclists in the long term, the construction will cause some inconvenience.
The overview map ( PDF, 181 kB) below shows the individual stages.

Between December 2010 and June 2011 the Department of Public Works will be performing works to improve lighting, pathway condition and install security cameras on the Northbank section of the Bicentennial Bikeway, between QUT and the Victoria Bridge. Efforts will be made to minimise disruptions but users can expect some partial and full closures, temporary detours and short term delays.
