New Stop on Brisbane's busiest bikeway

New stop on Brisbane’s busiest bikeway

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk is forging ahead with his plan to activate Bicentennial Bikeway, with refreshment and information pods to be housed under the Coronation Drive overpass.
The Lord Mayor said construction would begin in early 2013 with three separate pods, a coffee kiosk, juice bar and information stand, and seating to be provided under a shaded rest stop area close to the Go Between Bridge.
“This is the first time Council has installed recreational facilities along a bikeway and is a wonderful example of how we can make active transport a more attractive option for residents and visitors,” Cr Quirk said.
“As Brisbane’s busiest bikeway, carrying more than 5,500 pedestrians and cyclists daily, it makes sense to activate this piece of unutilised land for more vibrant purposes,” Cr Quirk said.
“With so much existing foot traffic and some of the best views of the river, this is the perfect place to bring to life and refresh walkers, joggers, cyclists and tourists on their journey.”
The three pods are to be privately operated on a licence arrangement and are expected to be operational by mid-2013.
Cr Quirk said the project coincided with an upgrade to a section of the Bicentennial Bikeway, between Park Road and Lang Parade, Milton.
“Over the next four years we have committed a record $120 million for Council’s Better bikeways 4 Brisbane program to upgrade Brisbane’s bikeways,” he said.
“Once the next stage of the Bicentennial Bikeway upgrade is completed these works will be an important social and cultural connection with the Brisbane River.

“Both of these projects will complement one another and will go a long way to ensuring our bikeways are both a great active travel route and recreational link.”

The Bicentennial Bikeway upgrade works begun in January 2013 and is expected to be complete in mid-2013, weather permitting.
