We're pleased to advise that as part of Brisbane City Council upgrades to the Guyatt Park CityCat terminal, Cr James Mackay tells us that 11 bike parking rings will be installed as part of the project. This means 22 bikes will be able to park at the terminal, so St Lucia locals will be able to roll down, chain up and hop on the ferry.

You can keep up to date on the progress of this project here:

📷: Richlands Station bike parking rings as a similar example.

We're thrilled to see that work is about to start on the Sumners Road Interchange Project, which will include a cycleway underpass to greatly improve safety and efficiency of the Centenary Cycleway heading north-south between Darra and the CBD.

If you want to talk to the project team, there is an information session at Mt Ommaney Shopping Centre near Aldi at the following times:

Thursday 18 July 2019, 6–8pm
Saturday 20 July 2019, 12-2pm

Construction is expected to take 2 years.

Meanwhile, here's an underpass being built in the Netherlands. It took 2 days.

If anyone's seen it, or saw who took it, please let us know. There's a devastated 4 yo who has lost his pride and joy.

Brisbane City Council advises that construction is to start on the replacement of the footbridge between Sutling Street and Akuna Street, Kenmore.

The existing wooden bridge with 1m wide path will be replaced with a 3.6m wide steel bridge. Construction will be complete late in 2019.

In the meantime there will be a significant detour for people walking trying to cross here.

The bridge is currently not really used for cycling access, but be aware of this construction just the same, and the likelihood of more pedestrians on the Cubberla Creek Bikeway.

Bring it on! The new cycle underpass will be a massive improvement for cyclists. Cutting out a 700m detour and an often long wait at the lights, this could save up to 5 minutes per trip. Thanks Jess Pugh MP for Mount Ommaney and Mark Bailey MP - Labor for Miller. ... See MoreSee Less

In Britain a documentary was aired this week "The Scourge of the Streets" referring to cyclists.

Bike hate is as common, rabid and irrational in the UK as it is here.

We prefer this message from Chris Boardman.

Cycling is positive. For individuals, for local communities, for society. Let's share the positive message, let's urge our authorities to keep building the environment so more of us can share the joy of cycling and reap the benefits.

British Cycling
Cyclists aren’t the ‘scourge of the streets’. They are mothers, fathers, grandparents and children all doing their bit to make Britain a healthier, greener and more liveable place.

Share this video from Chris Boardman to help us make our message loud and clear to Channel 5
