New cycleway to transform the City of Canada Bay

Council | 03 August 2020

Planning for a $7 million cycleway connecting Concord to the Bay Run has begun.

“With more of our community choosing cycling as their preferred mode of transport, we are preparing to construct a key cycleway that will better connect our City for cyclists and pedestrians,” City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said.

The City of Canada Bay has been working closely with key stakeholders to design a regional cycling route that will suit the needs of the community.

“The detailed concept plans are now seeking community feedback to finalise the plans,” Mayor Tsirekas said.

“This $7 million regional cycling route will connect Concord with the Bay Run, enhancing safe connectivity through Five Dock and the rest of our City, to the inner west and Sydney CBD.”

“The route, which runs from Patterson Street, Concord, through Canada Bay and Five Dock, culminating with improved access to the celebrated Bay Run, is a key part of the City of Canada Bay’s new Bike Plan which is being developed for our entire area.”

“The new Concord to the Bay Run cycleway has come at a perfect time for our community. When finished, pedestrians and commuters will enjoy separated cycle lanes, off-road shared paths, traffic calming improvements, and upgrades to signage along the route,” he said.

 The State Member for Drummoyne, John Sidoti MP acknowledged that the cycleway is funded by the NSW Government as part of the Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program (PRUAIP).

“The NSW Government is investing in a range of transport options for the community, including roads, public transport and now active transport to facilitate easy commutes now and into the future,” Mr Sidoti said.

“Cycling is a great way to maintain a healthy lifestyle and this project will improve infrastructure available for cyclists and pedestrians,” he said.
