Kangaroo Point Bikeway Planning Study: Charting a Path to Better Connectivity

Kangaroo Point Bikeway

Updates from Council are due to be released anytime soon, on key themes from community inputs and next steps for the Kangaroo Point Bikeway, from Captain Cook Bridge to Thornton Street. The project focuses on enhancing connectivity, safety, and accessibility within the Brisbane Bicycle Network.

The project encompasses the stretch located at the corner of Lower River Terrace (opposite the Veloway 1 bikeway), traversing through Kangaroo Point Cliffs Park, and extending along the boardwalk and river’s edge pathways to Thornton Street.  It examines various technical aspects, including anticipated benefits, site constraints, impacts, costs, risks, and opportunities for improvement.

This study represents a collaborative effort between Brisbane City Council and the Queensland Government, supported by the Cycle Network Local Government Grants program.

The Kangaroo Point Bikeway is a crucial inner-city active travel artery, holding a prominent place within Brisbane’s Bicycle Network. It facilitates connections between Kangaroo Point, the Central Business District (CBD), South Bank, and other key destinations. 

This route is highly favoured by both commuters and recreational travellers, serving people of all ages and abilities. It links major residential areas to essential hubs such as public transport nodes, universities, schools, shopping precincts, commercial centres, and recreational facilities. The Kangaroo Point Green Bridge, currently under construction, will further enhance this connectivity.

Following the consultation period that culminated in October 2023, Brisbane City Council has yet to provide an update outlining the next steps for this project.

It is important to note that construction funding has yet to be confirmed for future phases of this project.
