$40 million funding injection boosts cycleway access
EACH year, more people are choosing bike riding as transport. The NSW Government is supporting this growth through an injection of $40 million towards new cycling infrastructure in Sydney and regional NSW.
“More than 380 projects across the state will be delivered, completing crucial missing links on popular walking and cycling paths, building new routes to connect growing communities, linking people to public transport hubs and improving access to regional centres,” NSW Transport and Infrastructure Minister Andrew Constance said. North Shore: Completion of the missing link between the Naremburn cycleway and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Western Sydney: A new cycleway connecting the existing Sunnyholt Rd cycleway to Blacktown station and Richmond Rd, and continuation of the cycleway along the Great Western Highway to connect to the University of Western Sydney, Penrith. Eastern suburbs: Planning and delivery of improvements to the bicycle route between Bondi Junction and the CBD. Inner West: An upgrade in connections between Anzac Bridge and residential areas including Summer Hill, Lewisham and Lilyfield. South East: Improved con- nections to Randwick Racecourse, hospital and university precinct. Sydney Airport: Completion of missing links between the airport and surrounding areas including St George, the Eastern Suburbs, inner Sydney and the Inner West.
