William Street and Margaret Street intersection changes

With road closures and footpath changes required for Queen’s Wharf Brisbane, the Department of State Development has been working with Brisbane City Council, the Department of Transport and Main Roads and the Queensland Police Service to monitor pedestrian movements over the last several months.

The monitoring has proven pedestrian crossing improvements on William Street are required to manage the vast numbers of pedestrians and ensure both pedestrian and vehicular safety.

Pedestrian crossing improvements will be undertaken on the William Street and Margaret Street intersection between Sunday 9 July and Friday 21 July 2017. Works will occur after hours between 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Thursday.

Works will require the temporary closure of the William Street and Margaret Street intersection during these times and will include:

  • extending the kerb on the 1 William Street side
  • widening the crossing zone
  • providing additional push button posts.

Pedestrians and cyclists are asked to consider crossing at the Alice Street/QUT end of William Street during the works.

During the works vehicles will be required to follow directions in place by Traffic Management.

Changed traffic conditions may include reduced speed limits, lane or shoulder closures, and minor delays. Traffic control and signage will be in place as required. Motorists are expected to drive safely and be mindful of changed traffic conditions and consider the safety of the work crew.

The Department of State Development’s Queen’s Wharf Brisbane project team continues to monitor pedestrian and vehicle movements around the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane precinct. You will be notified of any additional changes required prior to their implementation.
