The Kingsford Smith Drive offers a major gateway to the city for tourists, visitors, and residents. More than just a road project, the Kingsford Smith Drive upgrade involves the transformation of the site into a vibrant urban corridor. The improvements aim to maximise public access to the river and reinforce Brisbane’s identity as a new world city.

Built along the Brisbane River at Hamilton, the new River Walk has a dedicated two-metre wide riverside pedestrian path apart from the three-metre-wide, two-way off-road cycle path.
