A section of Brisbane's most popular bikeway will be closed for the next 12 months for an upgrade.
The Bicentennial Bikeway will be closed from the Goodwill Bridge to behind 1 William Street as part of the new Queens Wharf development.
Queens Wharf Brisbane posted the news on their Facebook page this morning, informing cyclists that they will be diverted along Gardens Point Road to connect between the Goodwill Bridge and the Bicentennial Bikeway near Margret Street.
"From this morning, Brisbane cyclists and pedestrians have begun taking a temporary diversion along Gardens Point Road in the city while a 500-metre section of the riverfront bikeway has closed to undergo an exciting upgrade for the future.
"This first section of bikeway – between the Goodwill Bridge and 1 William Street – will be enhanced and improved as part of the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane public realm works, and will take 12 months to complete. It will be followed by a phased upgrade of the bikeway all the way to the Victoria Bridge.
"In total, one kilometre of bikeway between the Goodwill and Victoria bridges will be enhanced as part of the $3.6 billion Queen’s Wharf Brisbane integrated resort development."
The speed limit for the shared zone has been reduced to 20 kms/hr and the Gardens Point CityCat terminal will continue to run as normal.
