Greenslopes to be Connected to Cycleway

Greenslopes bikers are set to have safer roads to traverse as construction of the last part of Stage D of the Veloway Cycleway (V1) gets underway.

Stage D of the project will connect bike riders from Greenslopes, Annerley and Buranda to the Gateway Motorway off-ramp at Eight Mile Plains. Already three stages have been completed and Stage D is expected to be done in late 2017, provided that there are no adverse weather and construction issues.

Once completed, cyclists will be able to use the bikeway from Lewisham Street in Greenslopes to O’Keefe Street in Buranda to access the existing veloway. Portions of Stage D have been completed, but they cannot be utilised until the last part of the section is finished.

The V1 project is a 17km connection for commuters who choose bicycles as their way of going to their destination.

The project is aimed at providing bikers with a dedicated and safe route from CBD to Eight Mile Plains. The transport initiative also helps promote healthy and active lifestyle as well as address issues of traffic and environmental concerns.

After completion of Stage D, the project can proceed to Stage E, which will be located on Birdwood Road in Holland Park West to Gaza Road in Tarragindi. Stage E is still subject to funding.
