The Gateway Upgrade North project will significantly improve active transport infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists. This includes construction of a new, off-road shared pedestrian and cycle path along the length of the project, with connections to existing local bicycle and pedestrian networks.
The new pathway will be 3.5m wide and will connect the Jim Soorley Bikeway at Nudgee to the existing Gateway Motorway pedestrian/cyclist underpass at Bracken Ridge, making use of existing shared paths adjacent to the Gateway Motorway.
The new pathway will provide a continuous off-road link between Redcliffe in the north and Stafford in the west, for safe and sustainable pedestrian/cyclist travel on the north side of Brisbane.
Grade separated crossings will be provided:
- under Nudgee Road at Nudgee
- over the Gateway Motorway at Nudgee Road
- over Sandgate Road and the Shorncliffe rail line at Deagon
- under Bicentennial Road at Boondall
- under Deagon Deviation.
Five covered rest areas will also be provided along the new shared pathway. These facilities will include lighting, seating and drinking water for people and pets (at two locations), providing an opportunity for pathway users to rest and enjoy the natural surroundings.
Improvements to footpaths will also be made along Nudgee Road and Depot Road.
To improve traffic flow, pedestrian safety and access to the North Boondall train station, the Sandgate Road and Holroyd Street intersection will be signalised.
