New vision has been unveiled of Brisbane City Council’s planned $58 million Indooroopilly Riverwalk project which is set to connect the Western Freeway Bikeway and the University of Queensland aiming to take cyclists onto a dedicated cycleway.

The five-metre wide elevated riverwalk would include a walkway and dedicated bike lanes as well as a new pedestrian and cycle crossing point to Coonan Street at Westminster Road.

According to Council, the riverwalk will significantly improve active transport through the area, by providing a safe route from Twigg Street to the Jack Pesch Bridge and the Indooroopilly Rail Station, with additional connections to Radnor Street and Riverview Terrace.

A viewing platform would be created along the new riverwalk for access to views of the Brisbane River and the Walter Taylor Bridge.

Following a tender period in 2019, Georgiou Brady Joint Venture was the successful tenderer to undertake construction of the riverwalk.

Project rundown

  • Five-metre-wide pedestrian and two-way separated cyclist facility
  • Shared cyclist and pedestrian connection to Foxton Street from the riverwalk.
  • Upgrade of the Foxton Street and Radnor Street intersection to create a safer environment for all road users.
  • Connection to the Jack Pesch Bridge and Indooroopilly Rail Station by linking the riverwalk to the existing path at Witton Barracks.
  • A dedicated pedestrian connection to Riverview Terrace.
  • Viewing platforms on the riverwalk overlooking the Brisbane River and the iconic Walter Taylor Bridge.
  • Lighting along the length of the riverwalk.
