A green link along the North Pine River is on the way, opening up access to parks and walking tracks.
“We are working to ‘go green as we grow,’ and a large part of this is providing high-quality active transport links like this one, to meet current and future demand,” she says.
“The project will see a three-metre wide shared pathway built on the southern side of the North Pine River, and the eastern side of the One Mile Creek connecting to Creekview Court.
“Construction will also include a cycling and pedestrian crossing to connect to an existing bridge at Mungarra Reserve, Petrie, along with fauna stencilling and signage.”
Councillor Mick Gillam (Div 8) says the North Pine River is one of the region’s greatest assets.
“Council is all about encouraging people to get out of their cars and hit the parks and walking tracks - and this spot really is a beautiful one, enjoyed by walkers, cyclists and even horse riders,” he says.
“Being so close to the river, this project presented plenty of challenges in terms of approvals from different authorities, but Council was determined to make it happen.”
Cr Gillam says Kurwongbah MP Shane King is a staunch supporter of the project and secured hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding through the Works for Queensland program.
Mr King says he’s looking forward to seeing the project come to life.
“This is a beautiful part of our area and I’m keen to see more funding flow to projects that get more kids kicking a footy in the local park, biking with friends, picnicking by the river, or just enjoying the great outdoors,” he says.
The work is estimated to take 12 weeks to complete, including a 25-day allowance for wet weather.
