The Queanbeyan River shared path will allow pedestrians and cyclists to navigate from the Queanbeyan CBD along the Queanbeyan River to Ellerton Drive. There is also a 2km loop within the Queanbeyan CBD which links the suspension bridge and the shared path bridge at Morisset Street.

Upcoming works

We are currently working on the shared path between Ellerton Drive and Barracks Creek.

From Monday 3 August works on a shared pedestrian and bike bridge crossing Barracks Creek will begin. This part of the project should take around two months. We plan to continue public access along the river path, except for a period of 2-3 days while we pour concrete.

Stages completed

As part of this project a new section of shared path has been constructed along Thorpe Avenue. Construction commenced in June 2018 for this new section and was completed in November 2018.

A section of path that joined the existing shared path in Ray Morton Park near Atkinson Street, continuing along Waniassa Street through the sensory gardens was completed in November 2018.

A new river crossing upstream of the existing Morisset Street low level crossing and the main structure of the bridge was installed mid July 2019. The bridge was opened to the public in September 2019. 

The section in front of the caravan park on Morisset Street was completed in early 2020.

The existing footpath from Marg Christensen Park to the suspension bridge along Trinculo Place was replaced with a shared path and was finished in March 2020.
