Chevron Island - active transport improvements

Commencing: November 2019
Completion: December 2019
Cost: $340,000

Project information

We're pleased to let you know we're making improvements to the active transport network in Chevron Island. This project will include constructing a new three-metre-wide path in Korman Family Park. We'll also be upgrading pedestrian crossings and ramps to improve accessibility and encourage walking and cycling in the area.

The route along Thomas Drive is part of the priority cycle route between The Esplanade, Surfers Paradise and Ferry Road, Southport identified in the South East Queensland Principal Cycle Network Plan. The newly constructed green bridge between the Gold Coast Cultural Precinct and Mawarra Street, Chevron Island, will also be supported by these improvement works.

This project is part of our ongoing investment to extend our active transport network and create a better connected Gold Coast.

Construction details

  • a new three-metre-wide, 160-metre-long shared path through Korman Family Park between Stanhill Drive (western end) and Anembo Street
  • pedestrian refuge crossings on Thomas Drive and Anembo Street
  • accessibility ramp upgrades on Parnoo Sreet, Weemala Street, Darrambal Street and Stanhill Drive (eastern end) to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act 1992
  • upgrade of paths on the eastern end of Thomas Drive to link to new ramps.

Works will take place between 6.30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Residents may notice some standard noise and dust during construction.

Minimum traffic delays are expected, and traffic management will assist with detours and temporary lane closures.

Additionally there will be some disruption for path users, however pedestrian detours around the work site will be provided to maintain access.

We encourage all path and road users to take extra care when workers are in the area and observe traffic signs and speed restrictions. We will do our best to minimise disruptions, and we thank you in advance for your patience.

Benefits to the community

  • improved safety for pedestrians, cyclists and road users
  • improved active transport corridor between Ferry Road, Southport and The Esplanade, Surfers Paradise
  • kerb ramp crossings compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA)
  • additional street trees and landscaping to provide shade and improve visual amenity.
