Diversion for Bicentennial Bikeway

The Bicentennial Bikeway is set to be temporarily diverted for further public space works to continue.

Bikeway users get ready to take a new route along the Bicentennial Bikeway between Neville Bonner Bridge and Waterline Park from Thursday 14 March 2024 (rescheduled ).

All pedestrians and cyclists will be redirected to a new alignment along The Landing as part of the latest diversion. This new path is adjacent to the Riverside Expressway and the Queen’s Wharf precinct with the existing bikeway either side of The Landing to remain in its current configuration.

Destination Brisbane Consortium Project Director Simon Crooks said the new alignment is a more straight forward route as finishing works move to the outer edge of The Landing.

“Bikeway users will be directed away from the river’s edge of The Landing so finishing works and the installation of balustrades can occur as we head towards opening,” Mr Crooks said.

“The new route follows along and under the Riverside Expressway between Waterline Park and the Neville Bonner Bridge and the areas either side remain the same.

“The temporary diversion will continue to be a mix of concrete shared pathways and temporary bridge structures connecting into the existing Bicentennial Bikeway and the Mangrove Walk.”

Directional signage, temporary fencing and night lighting will safely guide bikeway users along the temporary route. While construction is underway, bikeway users may notice increased construction noise and changed conditions when travelling from Waterline Park to the North Quay Ferry Terminal.

Active transport users will need to continue to take care and follow the speed limit signage and shared pathway markings.

Once completed, the upgraded bikeway and public realm space will open as part of the first stage of the precinct opening later this year.

The public space, including The Landing will see 340 native water gum, lilly-pilly and palm trees with around 4,000 plantings across the entire 7.5 hectares of the project.

The $3.6 billion Queen’s Wharf Brisbane development is being delivered by Destination Brisbane Consortium – a joint venture led by The Star Entertainment Group alongside its Hong Kong-based partners, Chow Tai Fook Enterprises and Far East Consortium.
