The North Brisbane Bikeway from Price Street to Kedron Brook is a step closer to completion, now that the project has reached its fourth stage.

With the bike project approaching the next phase, the Department of Transport and Main Roads is seeking tenders for the project.

Like the earlier phases of the project, Transport and Main Roads Minister Bailey said in a media statement that stage four will include a separated bikeway as well as priority cycle and pedestrian crossings.

“Riders have told us they want the North Brisbane Bikeway to continue along Dickson Street, and that’s the design we’re sticking with,” said Mr Bailey.

Mr Bailey said Stages One to Four of the North Brisbane Bikeway will provide almost 4.5 km of safer, separated bicycle lanes that will link with Brisbane’s broader network of bike infrastructure once complete.

One of those who welcomed the tender offer is Bicycle Queensland CEO Anne Savage, who believes cities that invest in healthy travel enjoy the benefits, with five dollars gained for every dollar spent.

“Bikeway growth is essential to our economic prosperity and will position Brisbane to achieve the vision of a healthy, safe, and sustainable travel future, reducing congestion and promoting healthy urban development,” Ms Savage said.

Bicycle Queensland commends the State Government and its investment in the North Brisbane Bikeway, which will provide a missing link in the bikeway network to help shorten travel times, improve safety, and get cyclists home sooner to their families.
