The attention of Brisbane City Council (BCC) is drawn to the North Brisbane Bikeway Project Stages 2 and 3, being delivered by the Brisbane City Council in partnership with the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR). Early works and site clearing for construction have now been completed, however, acceptance of the final detailed design is still to be granted by BCC. Pending this decision, petitioners request that, following bikeway completion, the remaining unused land on Bridge Road be designated a public park. A representative of TMR advised that no use has yet been decided for the unused portion (that is not used for the Northern Bikeway) of the now vacant land on Bridge Road, between Fraser and Rigby Streets. There are currently no parks or playgrounds in the area bounded by Lutwyche, Junction, Sandgate and Albion roads. This site on Bridge Road is a central location for this area, creating an accessible space for residents of the suburbs bordered by these main roads.
In accordance with Council’s “8 principles to guide our city” Protect and Create Greenspace, and in accordance with one of Council’s five major Budget areas “to keep Brisbane clean, green and sustainable”, petitioners request that a portion of the $154.6 million budget allocated to new and upgraded parks be used for the creation of a park on this recently cleared land.
