Cycling Network Upgrade
Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) has completed two new cycling and pedestrian connections ahead of schedule. These connections will greatly enhance cycling options both to and around the airport through delivering a high quality connection to the Moreton Bay Bikeway network. This $475,000 project demonstrates BAC’s commitment to investing in sustainable transport infrastructure that integrates with the local cycling network.
New Connection to Moreton Bay Bikeway
Cyclists can now easily access the Airport precinct from the Moreton Bay Bikeway via two new high quality connections:
- In December 2013, BAC opened a new section that follows the Air Train alignment and connects with the current cycle path that goes to Skygate via the Charlie Earp Bridge.
- BCC also recently opened the new Gateway North Bikeway across Shultz Canal which connects to the Moreton Bay Bikeway near Nudgee Road.

BAC has also recently opened a new high quality connection between Lakeside Drive and 9th Avenue in the Skygate Precinct. This connection will enhance connectivity around the precinct, while servicing the new Golf Central facility.
