Please Lord Mayor Open the Gate

The Brisbane City Council announced back in 2014 that it would provide a shared pathway from the southern end of Viola Place along the Pinkenba Rail corridor to Schneider Road as part of the Better Bikeways 4 Brisbane Program.
 


The project involves constructing approximately 380 metres of shared pathway from the southern end of Viola Place along the Pinkenba Rail corridor (east of the Gateway Motorway) to Schneider Road. The project also involves installing lighting and wayfinding signage. The purpose was to connect the northern and southern suburbs of Brisbane to major employment hubs of Brisbane Airport and Australia Trade Coast

The BAC have completed a connecting bikeway on Lomandra Drive to Viola, now we need the Brisbane City Council to complete their part.

Airport BUG has written to the Lord Mayor Graham Quirk saying that we have waited too long for this bikeway. We have asked the Mayor to open the gate at the end of Viola Place to allow people on bicycles to ride on the existing gravel path to connect to Schneider Rd and safe access to the Gateway Bridge Bike way.



 This link would also be part of The Moreton Bay Cycleway that will connect:

- south to Eight Mile Plains, along the Bulimba Creek Bikeway
- north to Redcliffe, along the Moreton Bay Cycleway
- to the Brisbane Airport Corporation’s (BAC) cycle network.
