Shared Pathway Approval & Plans

Hutchinson Builders is undertaking the redevelopment of the Howard Smith Wharves project between the New Farm Riverwalk and Ivory Street From 1 June 2017 to 31 December 2018. 

During this time the Shared Pathway will remain open, but will be re-diverted at various stages throughout construction. The approval for the changes to the Shared Pathway are outlined below from Brisbane City Council including the approved Site Management Plans.

There will be times of full closure and these will be separately applied for and notified to the public.

Signage will be placed at either end of the Shared Pathway and at interaction locations where workers and machinery cross the Shared Pathway.

Cyclists and pedestrians are advised to slow down and watch for workers and machinery throughout the duration of the Howard Smith Wharves precinct.
