Brisbane City Council has announced a new cycling venue will be constructed at Murarrie to the new international Olympic standards by 2024, to prepare and encourage young riders for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Adrian Schrinner, Lord Mayor announced the joint partnership with State and Federal governments helped deliver the new $35 million International Cycle Park, which will provide an unrivalled training facility for young athletes.
“In just over a decades’ time, Brisbane’s Olympic and Paralympic destiny will arrive with the Games to be held right here in our home city”.
“The investments we make today in sports infrastructure will pay dividends during the Games because local athletes will have world-class facilities, like this cycling track, to learn and train on at home”.
“This fantastic facility will also be a drawcard for Brisbane into the future with cycling groups certain to be attracted by the prospect of holding their event in a future Olympic city that is also the fastest growing capital in the country,” Schrinner said.
The Murarrie Recreation Reserve, located at 1238 Wynnum Road, Murarrie was on the council agenda for upgrades in 2019, with the community feedback on a preliminary draft precinct plan before finalizing the concept plan for future upgrades to the reserve.
Adrian Schrinner added further, some details that were already available on the council website since 2021.
“In addition to the new Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) standard cycling track, the first stage of the project will include a new 500-metre speed skating track, a multi-purpose clubhouse, and accessible walkways and ramps, and tree plantings”.
“We sought community feedback on a preliminary draft precinct plan in mid-2019, which informed the plan to transform this area into a premier sport and recreation destination, offering a range of recreation opportunities for the whole community”.
“As a city known for its outdoor lifestyle, this upgrade is all part of how we’re making life in Brisbane even better,” Schrinner said.
