Benabrow Avenue, Bongaree - Transport Corridor Upgrade

Project summary

Moreton Bay Regional Council is working jointly with the Queensland Government Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) to carry out enhancements to the walking and cycling network from the Bribie Island Bridge to Goodwin Drive, Bongaree.

Benabrow Avenue is an important transport corridor and acts as a gateway into Bribie Island. The corridor enhancements are programmed to coincide with scheduled road resurfacing works to protect and ensure the ongoing longevity of the road pavement surface.

The Benabrow Avenue project will include:

  • Programmed upgrade to the existing road surface
  • Footpath widening
  • Construction of missing footpath links
  • Construction of new raised pedestrian zebra crossings
  • Installation of on‐road cycling lanes
  • Landscape rejuvenation
  • Improved footpath lighting
  • Wayfinding Signage

As a result of these works, it will make it easier and more attractive for residents and visitors to walk and cycle between Sylvan Beach Esplanade, the Welsby Parade foreshore, and the Bribie Island Shopping Centre.

This project forms part of the $1.3M principal cycleway improvement program that is funded by TMR. The planned works will significantly upgrade and enhance the safety of pedestrians and cyclists and encourage more people to walk and cycle.

Project update and traffic management

October 2017 update: The corridor upgrade is progressing well, and is beginning to take its final shape. Construction of the pathways, kerbing, drainage and crossing areas are now approaching completion, with only small areas yet to be finalised. The project team will soon be commencing the final road surfacing works, line marking, and landscaping; which have been delayed due to the recent wet weather. It is currently anticipated that the project will be completed by early to mid-November, subject to weather and other unforeseen delays.
