Honeyeater Drive, Burleigh Waters new pathway

Commencing: June 2020
Completion: December 2020

Project information

We are pleased to let you know that works to improve cycling and pedestrian connectivity in Burleigh Waters will shortly be underway. We are constructing over 1.5 kilometres of shared pathway on Honeyeater Drive.

This area is a popular transit route between residential properties, schools, local shopping precincts, sporting clubs, and the broader transport network.

The City has contributed $250,000 towards the pre-construction phase of the project. An additional $1.1 million has been contributed under the State Government COVID Works for Queensland initiatives.

Construction impacts

Construction will occur during standard weekday hours of Monday to Friday between 7am and 6pm.

Some tree removal and pruning will be necessary; however, new semi-mature natives will be planted to compensate for this. Traffic management will be in place to assist pedestrians and road users around active work sites. Please follow signs and slow down when approaching the works area.

We will do our best to minimise construction impacts and inconvenience. Thank you for your patience while we work towards a better connected city.

Benefits to the community

The new sections of shared pathway will be Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA) compliant and feature improved kerb side accessibility.

This pathway will provide a safe, off-road space for pedestrians and cyclists and will fill the missing link for this highly-used shopping precinct.

Improved landscaping and planting of native species will give the area a fresh new look and feel.
