What did I miss? Schneider Rd Eagle Farm

What did I miss? Schneider Rd Eagle Farm

Postby Wazza » Tue Jul 30, 2013 9:05 pm

On my way home this arvo (4:45pm) and I copped a turn around at the new works on the bike path between Schneider Rd and Lamington Ave. The path was completely blocked so I had to go back to KS Dve to Nudgee Rd. This was not a problem however it would have been nice to know about the closure. Up until last week they had been leaving an access onto the path of some sort. So have I missed the new concrete footpath on the eastern side of Schneider Rd which will connect to Lamington Ave or was I too late for the stop/go guys so they closed the path. My concern is tomorrow as I don't want to get to there from the Lamington Ave end and find I have to double back to Nudgee Rd and I would prefer not to go directly to KS Dve to the Gateway if I don't have to.
Has anybody been through this morning or this afternoon and if so what did you find.

Don't panic, the path is open under Schneider Rd. I just forgot to look for it last night :oops:

Sorry, I'm a bit confused - so is there a permanent change to access from the Schneider Rd bridge to Lamington Avenue?? That's my usual commute route, but I haven't ridden the last week due to being interstate...

I might be wrong but IIRC they are building a pathway under the bridge to loop around to the other side before closing off the current path for drainage works and electricial works before reopening it later once works are complete ie the no entry oil refinery signs is the new access pathway to Lamington Ave (just turn off where EB games is and then go under Schneider road bridge to rejoin the pathway).

It should be something like this.

How is that going to work if you are travelling from the south?
I often go that way to get from the track at Murarrie to Nundah...

Its the same way but instead of turning left make a right like Waz said. It should be identical but just on the other side of the bridge now.

I did figure that much out...still preferable to go this way than continue up KSD to Nudgee Rd or Racecourse Rd, especially when riding on my own!
Thanks for confirming
