Please be aware that there is expected to be an increase in traffic around Northshore Hamilton – particularly on Friday and Saturday evenings as people visit the precinct to see TOTEM and also arriveat Eat Street Markets.
We have been liaising with the organisers of Cirque du Soleil and Eat Street Markets about how to cooperatively manage traffic and limit disruption for residents, businesses and visitors alike.
We encourage people to ride the CityCat to and from Northshore Hamilton. The Brett’s Wharf terminal is the closest to Eat Street Markets and the Northshore Hamilton terminal is closest to the Cirque du Soleil Big Top. Check out the ferry timetable on the Translink website.
If you are planning on driving to the precinct to see TOTEM, there are 750 car park spaces for Cirque du Soleil audiences. We also encourage you to check out the proposed traffic route to make getter there easier http://www.northshorehamilton.com.au/?name=Totem-by-Cirque-du-Soleil
Some infrastructure upgrades have recently been completed at Northshore Hamilton and more improvements are on the way.
Land preparation works for the future Theodore-Barcham link will commence mid-2015. It is anticipated that construction of this road could commence from early 2016.
This new road is a key road access point featured in the masterplan and will improve access from Kingsford Smith Drive to Northshore Hamilton and will provide greater ease of access for residents of Hamilton Reach and for visitors to the Northshore Riverside Park.
Upgrades to one of Northshore’s main entry points at Remora Road will commence from mid-2015. These works will continue through to mid next year and will deliver a more prominent ‘front door’ into Northshore.
Both lanes of the northern carriageway of Macarthur Avenue are open to residents once again and the majority of sewer upgrades which required the temporary closure of part of this road have now been completed.
We’ve also been pleased to improve pedestrian access and better linkages between the western and eastern ends of the precinct.
Improved infrastructure and pedestrian networks
During March EDQ constructed a concrete footpath along Macarthur Avenue. The temporary footpath provides residents and visitors a better and safer connection between Portside Wharf and Eat Street Markets to the Northshore Riverside Park.
In the longer-term a landscaped connection will be delivered and as development occurs, a riverwalk is planned along the edge of the river.
Also, you may have seen that Brisbane City Council has released its final reference design of Kingsford Smith Drive (KSD) which will widen this road to six lanes. The KSD project will a great benefit to residents of and visitors to Northshore, and will also improve links between the CBD and Airport.
More information is available from our website, including links to information about the KSD project.
