The Moreton Bay Region’s New Shared Pathway is Now Open

By Sophie Anderson

The new 12.6km, 3m wide shared pathway opened last Saturday, 17th September. The path links from Kippa-Ring through to Petrie, making it a great way to get out and explore the beautiful Moreton Bay Region. Councillor Julie Greer welcomed the opening of the shared user pathway which connects all six stations along the Redcliffe Peninsula Line, and will give residents and visitors the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the line ahead of train services commencing on October 4.

“The shared path will link users from Kippa-Ring right through to Petrie and provide convenient access to a number of the region’s retail and visitor hubs like North Lakes, Petrie and the Redcliffe Peninsula,” Cr Greer said.

“It’s great for families and visitors who want to explore our region on foot or bike and discover all the experiences it has to offer, including local beaches, cultural hubs such as the North Pine Historical Village and shopping like Westfield North Lakes.”

“With more than 36 connections with other local pathways, the shared path means commuters can easily access their nearest station without having to drive. The shared path is three metres wide throughout, meaning there’s plenty of room for pedestrians, cyclists and other users.”

According to Councillor Greer, the project team have been working extremely hard to get the pathway ready.

“I know local residents have been eager to get out there and make use of this great new pathway before the official opening of the line and I recognise the DTMR and council project team who have been working hard to make this happen,” said Councillor Greer.

“The new shared path includes all-abilities exercise equipment, as well as a number of community-created art projects for you to discover as you make your way along the line,” Councillor Denise Sims said.

“The new shared path together with the 650 weekly train services that’ll be travelling along the Redcliffe Peninsula Line gives our communities even more travel options, and demonstrates the commitment all three levels of government have to generating more lifestyle and economic opportunities for our residents.”
