An extension of the Minnippi Parklands bikeway is one of 41 projects to benefit from a $40 million Morrison Government funding injection into infrastructure upgrades across the Brisbane region.
Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta MP said the funding had been delivered to Brisbane City Council through the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Grants.
“This funding will support a year’s worth of employment and support to local businesses and industries around Brisbane,” Mr Vasta said.
“I am very pleased my electorate of Bonner will benefit from this funding injection, with construction of a bikeway through Minnippi Parklands.
“The project will cost around $3.7 million and connect Wynnum Road and Creek Road through the existing bushland reserve.”
Mr Vasta said construction would get underway in mid-2021 and be completed by the end of the year.
“This new bikeway will be up and running by the summer school holidays so it will get plenty of use,” Mr Vasta said.
“Thanks to the Morrison Government, Brisbane City Council will be able to deliver a diverse range of projects across the city, including this project in my electorate of Bonner,” Mr Vasta said.
“These local projects will put money into the pockets of local suppliers and residents, putting a much-needed economic boost to our region.”
