From 1 January 2017, Queens Wharf Road (adjacent to the Brisbane River) was permanently closed to traffic and a section of William Street (between Elizabeth Street and Margaret Street) will be closed to pedestrian and vehicle traffic for the period of the Integrated Resort Development's construction.

To facilitate the $3B Queen's Wharf Brisbane Integrated Resort Development, on 1 January 2017 the State and Destination Brisbane Consortium closed part of William Street and Queens Wharf Road to normal traffic. The road closures, which fall within the Queen's Wharf Brisbane Priority Development Area ( 441 KB) were approved by Economic Development Queensland and publicly notified on 16 December 2016.
As the development area is a construction site, due to the road closures a number of motorcycle parking spaces within the development area are no longer available.
As of August 2017, Brisbane City Council and the State Government installed over 115 new spaces to replace those lost from the Queen's Wharf Brisbane precinct.
For detailed information on motorcycle parking, view the Brisbane City Council's interactive map by searching for ‘Inner city motorcycle parking’ on www.brisbane.qld.gov.au
The Bicentennial Bikeway, under the Riverside Expressway, is used by a large number of cyclists and pedestrians.
In 2016 the Destination Brisbane Consortium conducted cycle and pedestrian counts for the number of users along the path to gauge the peak and non-peak times.
The Bicentennial Bikeway will remain open during the demolition phase. However, DBC and its contractors will maintain the function of the Bikeway during the construction period, facilitating for safe construction activities near or across the bikeway.
When upgrades are being made to the bikeway, the route for cyclists and pedestrians may change or be diverted depending on construction works throughout the six-year build. These changes will likely occur between the Goodwill Bridge and the rear of 1 William Street and may commence as early as late 2017.
Cyclists will be notified through extensive signage and traffic controllers will assist with the safe management of these spaces when necessary.
Queen's Wharf Brisbane will provide high quality end of trip facilities for staff, residents and visitors to the precinct.
