Diversion making way for revitalisation
The Bicentennial Bikeway diversion for active transport users is set to take place in early 2022 as the waterfront transforms at Queen’s Wharf.
Likely by late-February 2022, pedestrians and active transport users will take a new route along the Bicentennial Bikeway between Victoria Bridge and Waterline Park.
This temporary diversion is making way for civil and landscaping works where the current alignment is located under the Riverside Expressway.
The diversion will be place for around 12 months.
Multiplex Project Manager Tyson Macdonald said the diversion extends onto The Landing and will include temporary bridge structures near the North Quay Ferry terminal.
“Extensive civil and landscaping works will be taking place along the Bicentennial Bikeway requiring a diversion for a section of the bikeway while the upgrade is underway.
“Directional signage, temporary fencing and hoarding will guide bikeway users along the temporary route that goes onto The Landing.
“Active transport users will need to follow the speed limit signage and take care while travelling on the diversion,” Tyson said.
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.
Ongoing public space upgrades will also extend up the ridgeline, across Queens Wharf Road and into Miller Park.
Once completed, the upgraded bikeway and public realm space will open the same time as the Integrated Resort Development.
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.
