12 May 2015. Cyclists and pedestrians will benefit from the newly completed first section of the North Brisbane Bikeway at Herston, which was officially opened today.

Minister for Mains Roads and Road Safety Mark Bailey said the $2 million project would be an asset for active travellers on Brisbane’s north side.

“This section of the bikeway offers a path for cyclists between Gilchrist Avenue at Victoria Park, Herston and the RNA showground’s Gate 6 at Bowen Hills,” Mr Bailey said.

“A pedestrian path linking to Gilchrist Avenue will create a safe crossing under the busy Bowen Bridge Road and alongside the RNA Showgrounds to Bowen Park.

Member for Brisbane Central Grace Grace said the North Brisbane Bikeway would be a popular route for cyclists and pedestrians travelling into and out of the CBD.

“Separating the bikeway from the roadway will help ease congestion along this busy stretch of road.”

Ms Grace said the newly-completed section is one of a number of new sections that would be rolled out along the North Brisbane Bikeway.

“The next section of the bikeway through Bowen Park, is currently in the detailed design stage, along with the section of the bikeway from Federation Street to Somerset Street in Windsor.

Construction of these sections is expected to be completed by mid-2016.
