NORTH SHORE CYCLEWAY
The extension of the North Shore Cycleway south of Naremburn, towards the Sydney Harbour Bridge, is a recognised major missing link in the Metro Sydney Bike Network.
The first stage of this project involves the design and construction of a high quality off-road shared pedestrian / cycle path along the Warringah Freeway corridor (one of the busiest roads in Australia), to connect the present ending point of the cycleway at Merrenburn Avenue, Naremburn to the existing pedestrian / cycle bridge at Ridge Street, North Sydney. Early works have already been built as part of the Warringah Freeway Bus Layover and the Falcon Street pedestrian and cyclist facilities projects at Cammeray. Later stages of the North Shore Cycleway project would respond to the 'HarbourLink' community idea, connecting North Sydney to the Sydney Harbour Bridge Bike Path.
In partnership with Roads and Maritime Services, in 2009 North Sydney Council commissioned an in-depth study of the costs and benefits of staged completion of the North Shore Cycleway. See North Sydney Council for more information.
HARBOUR BRIDGE TO WOOLLOOMOOLOO CYCLEWAY
Concept studies for this missing link in the Metro Sydney Bike Network will identify route options to connect the Harbour Bridge Bike Path at The Rocks to the City of Sydney's Bourke Street Cycleway, and look at options, opportunities and constraints in consultation with stakeholders including the local community.
Following concept studies, route projects can proceed to detailed design so that building can start when funding is available.
Inner Sydney regional bicycle network report
In 2010, the City of Sydney commissioned independent research to quantify the economic benefits of the proposed Inner Sydney Regional Bike Network. See City of Sydney for more information.
