Consultation Complete – North Brisbane Bikeway (Stage 5), Clayfield

FacebooktwittermailFacebooktwittermail

The Brisbane City Council has closed the community consultation process for the design of Stage 5 of the Northern bikeway, starting at Price Street to the Kedron Brook along Dickson Street, Wooloowin and Jackson Street in Clayfield.

Following on from stage 4, which has been constructed. Stage 5 will include a new separated bikeway with priority cycle and pedestrian crossings across Dickson Street. The planning will be for the next 5.5km of the Bikeway infrastructure.

The council explains that the priority crossing will stop traffic on Dickson Street, similarly to how a ‘zebra crossing’ operates. Cyclists and pedestrians will use the raised platform with drivers required to give way. Signs and coloured road surfaces will be provided to identify give way areas and the cycle crossing.



Brisbane City Council has come up with 2 design options between Prince and Rawson Streets, along Dickson Street.

Option 1
This includes a new signalised crossing on Dickson Street, south-west of Thorrold Street, to connect the bikeway on either side of the road. Changes proposed:
– Priority crossings at Price Street and Bonney Avenue.
– Removing 30 car parks on Dickson Street, 10 on Bonney Avenue.

Option 2
This includes a new signalised crossing on Dickson Street, west of Rawson Street to connect the bikeway on either side of the road. Changes proposed:
– Priority crossings at Price Street, Thorrold Street and Bonney Avenue.
– Removing 29 car parks on Dickson Street, one on Thorrold Street, and 10 on Bonney Avenue.



Green Street Options
Brisbane City Council has proposed a green street on Keith, Sydney and Jackson streets to connect the separated bikeway on Junction Road to the Kedron Brook Bikeway. This will reduce the speed environment with drivers and riders sharing the existing road space.

Both options reduce the road speed to a limit of 40 km/hr on Keith, Sydney and Jackson streets, and provide traffic calming at intersections and speed humps. A new traversable roundabout at Sydney Street and Park Avenue will be provided

Option A (Cycle Street)
This changes Keith, Sydney and Jackson streets into cycle streets, where there is a low speed environment and riders are encouraged to travel closer to the centre of the road within a buffer zone between on-street parking and the traffic lane. Three on street car parks on Keith Street, five on Sydney Street and three on Jackson Street will be removed.

Option B (Cycle Lanes)
This changes Keith, Sydney and Jackson streets by installing advisory cycle lanes on both sides of the road by line marking giving the right of way to cyclists. Cars can use the advisory cycle lanes for safe passing when no riders are present. Three car parks on Keith Street, thirty two on Sydney Street and three on Jackson Street will be removed.
