The new Hilliards Creek crossing Cycleway was officially opened by State Member for Cleveland Mark Robinson and Redland City Mayor Karen Williams.

Mr Robinson said he was pleased to open the cycleway today along with the Mayor, and representatives from Bicycle Queensland, Redlands U3A Cycling Group and the Wynnum Redland Cycling Club.

“Providing better infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians is a part of our stronger plan for a brighter future,” Mr Robinson said.

“This is a great addition to the city’s walking and cycling trails as it provides an important link to the Moreton Bay Cycleway, which will eventually connect Redland Bay to Redcliffe.

“The cycleway is not just part of southeast Queensland’s recreational infrastructure, it a highly valuable community asset which will service many users ranging from local commuters to mobility scooter users.

The project was jointly funded by the state and local government at a cost of $1.4 million.

The new path section connecting between Sawmill Drive, Wellington Pt and Bibury and Gloucester Street Ormiston includes a 20 metre bridge and 194 metre boardwalk.
