Brisbane City Council
May 2018 – February 2019

Project Scope

  • Tree clearing
  • 330m of new 4m wide bikeway replacing the existing 2m wide cycle path
  • Eight retaining walls including bored piles and cantilevered walls
  • Relocation of electrical infrastructure, including switchboards for the ferry terminal and electrical supply to the Qld Maritime Museum
  • Installation of 450m of new stainless steel balustrade incorporating custom design lighting
  • Installation of new street lighting
  • Landscaping and installation of new park furniture and energy absorbing bollards


  • The proximity of residential apartments (approximately 1,000 residents) to the site
  • High volume of pedestrian and cyclist traffic passing through the site
  • Full vehicular, pedestrian and DDA access had to be maintained throughout the project duration
  • Presence of historical artefacts on the site required strict management protocols
  • The tight work area impacted access and the works


  • Conducted an effective design review which identified a significant issue with the retaining wall design
  • Re-designed the retaining wall ahead of time, so construction was not delayed
  • Liaised with stakeholders from BCC, Qld Maritime Museum, Energex, QUU, APA and Telstra to minimise disruption to the community
  • Developed and implemented protocols that enabled successful recovery of approximately 100 historical artefacts
  • Zero safety issues recorded, despite the challenging site
  • The project was delivered to agreed schedule
