River Loop - Macgregor Drive Closure

Postby ValleyForge » Tue Dec 16, 2014 5:41 pm

I know I tend to take threatened maintenance work around UQ with a grain of salt, but they really did close Macgregor drive this morning. Only a day after the scheduled closure :roll:.

Anyone aware of how long it's closed for?

It is closed until January 11th.

Closed just after the Blair Drive intersection i think.
Try Ryan's Rd / Carmody Rd / Swann Rd to get to St Lucia Golf club roundabout.
There are ways to get to Upland Rd through the uni, but that would be inappropriate for bunches of riders.

The standard Riverloop has changed as per the road works. Most people are now doing this portion of the loop to accommodate the closure.

That is, turn right at the lights on to Colridge, Left onto Carmody then Right onto Upland, which will connect with the rest of the loop

Thanks clydesmcdale. I grew up in St Lucia so I know it like the back of my hand; successfully navigated the bunch up and out of the closure up Cooper Rd on Tuesday.

We had ridden on Monday and it was open, hence my suspicion that the UQ maintenance guys had gone to Straddie fishing.
