Broughton Street Cycleway

In our commitment to sustainability and supporting active transport, over many years has continued to expand our local bike network to provide a safe cycling environment for people of all ages and riding abilities.

Through the NSW Government's Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program, the City of Canada Bay and Burwood Council have been allocated funding to build a cycleway from Burwood Park to Queen Elizabeth Park.

The City of Canada Bay will undertake the works from Parramatta Road to Queen Elizabeth Park on the western side of Broughton Street.

This project adds to our extensive bike network supporting both recreational and commuter cyclists. In Sydney, approximately 14% of residents are regular cyclists with over 1000 of our residents commuting, via a range of transport modes, to Burwood for work.

At this stage, construction is estimated to commence in August 2020 for a period of six months, weather permitting and subject to Australian Government restrictions in response to COVID–19.
