CityLink Cycleway Trial: Victoria Bridge to Close this January

Commuters within the inner city should start planning out new routes if they are used to taking Victoria Bridge as this area between William Street and Grey Street will be closed for two months beginning 24 Jan 2021 due to the CityLink Cycleway project.

Construction to convert the kerbside traffic lanes into two-way bikeways on Victoria Bridge, Melbourne Street and parts of William and Stanley Streets will start on the said date. 

Work will also include the widening of footpaths, the addition of kerb ramps and build-outs, as well as the improvement of traffic markings and signages that will make the intersections safer for cyclists. 

The closure of Victoria Bridge will also facilitate work and improvements of the Brisbane Metro project, alongside the CityLink Cycleway trial
