BQ’s top priorities for Brisbane City Council

In the lead-up to the Brisbane City Council’s budget, Bicycle Queensland’s advocacy team wrote to BCC Transport chair Cr Murphy outlining our top priorities following recent rain events.

We said the recent weather damage to our bikeways must be a signal to BCC to re-double our efforts towards making Brisbane a better place to walk and ride. Any other response will see our generation condemned by those to come.

BQ’s top priorities in Brisbane City Council LGA:

  • Complete Stage 5 of the North Brisbane Bikeway.
  • Continue with planning and seeking funding for the Toowong to West End and St Lucia to West End Green Bridges.
  • Rebuild the Kedron Brook Bikeway back better.

We have also been working with the North Brisbane Bicycle Users Group on potential interim solutions for local access to washed-out sections of the Kedron Brook bikeway around Stafford and Grange. 

BQ and NorthBUG have written to the Lord Mayor offering these solutions and requesting temporary paths be put in place. Read our letter here.
