Here at Cycle 2 City we are disappointed by the the latest decision of the Coordinator General to permit a two year closure of a section of the Mt Coot-tha loop. The closure will affect Sir Samuel Griffith Drive between Scenic Drive and Mt Coot-tha Road.
Bicycle Queensland have informed us that riders will now have to use Scenic Drive on the ‘front way’ at all times if ‘looping’ the Coot-tha, which takes riders to an awkward stop sign on a downhill.
However, Transcity and Brisbane City Council are working on some other bicycle improvements – including a left turn slip lane for bicycles only – and more footpaths through the works area so walkers will be able to be clear of the road.
The closure is expected to be implemented in late February. Riders beware.
