Project Overview

Building on their expertise in the successful delivery of complex and logistically challenging cycleway infrastructure QBC have been awarded the Gateway North Connection project by the Brisbane City Council (BCC).

The Gateway North Connection project will commence the union of cyclists from existing local cycle networks in Nudgee, Nundah and Eagle Farm to the pedestrian and cycle path of the Gateway Bridge and suburbs south of the Brisbane River. When constructed, this project will connect the new Gateway Bridge with Kedron Brook Wetlands Bikeway, north of Schultz Canal and will form one part of the missing links in the 150 km Moreton Bay Cycleway that will eventually stretch from Bribie Island to Redland Bay.

This project is part of the Brisbane City Councils and Department of Transport and Main Roads shared commitment to supporting increased cycling and cycling safety in Queensland.
