Underway: new bike path and waterfront connection

Work is underway to make space for bikes on the southern side of Post Office Square to create a direct biking connection to the waterfront.

We'll also be improving the signalised crossing for pedestrians and bikes at Jervois Quay between Post Office Square and Queens Wharf. 

These changes will make this area safer and easier for everyone.

What's changing

  • A 1.5m-wide one-way bike path will be marked along the edge of the square, inside the bollards, so people can ride through to Jervois Quay and the waterfront from Grey Street and Customhouse Quay.
  • On both sides of Jervois Quay there will be new kerb ramps with tactile pavers, new signal poles and cross buttons for pedestrians, and a dedicated one-way crossing for bikes to Queens Wharf.
  • The path will be marked with lighter coloured bricks and cycle symbols to distinguish it from the surrounding pedestrian area.

 Post Office Square

  • The work will mainly involve lifting and laying pavers, replacing signal poles, digging out old kerbs and laying new ramps on both sides of Jervois Quay.
