Fortitude Valley black spot upgrade progresses

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk is making steady progress on the black spot upgrade of Ann and Gipps Street, with works beginning this weekend to improve the footpath near Chinatown.

The Lord Mayor said work on the $1.9 million project began in early February to increase motorist and pedestrian safety along the Gipps Street corridor.

“With these works progressing ahead of schedule, we will be closing the footpath on Gipps Street off to the public to allow for the construction of a widened footpath,” Cr Quirk said.

“Currently the pathway is too narrow, so these works will ensure the area is improved for pedestrian accessibility and amenity.

“The works are expected to take approximately six weeks to complete and will include the removal of the old pathway and the construction of new concrete pathways and driveway entries.”

Cr Quirk said the Gipps Street project was part of Council’s commitment to delivering increased safety and improved traffic flow across Brisbane’s road network.

During the course of these construction works, pedestrians are advised to seek alternative routes.

These routes include travelling through the Chinatown Mall (Duncan Street) or crossing Gipps Street at the intersections of Wickham Street or Ann Street and travelling along the footpath in front of Cathedral Place. Access to emergency exits will be maintained.

Due to high volumes of traffic on Gipps Street, these works will be completed outside of peak times, between 9pm and 5am.
