Lane Cove Bicycle Plan is a comprehensive plan that aims to make
cycling safer, easier and more attractive in Lane Cove and to allow for
greater connectivity with surrounding bicycle paths. Originally
developed in 2008, the Bicycle Plan is now due to be reviewed.
In conjunction with this review, the Lane Cove Bicycle Advisory Committee has developed 15 new bicycle routes
which could be included in the updated Plan. These routes focus on the
development of shared user pathways (SUP’s) and separated cycleways.
The Bicycle Advisory Committee’s primary concern has been the balanced consideration of the various
needs of cyclists within Lane Cove and surrounding areas including the
provision of routes that link key destinations including schools, Lane
Cove Plaza, Lane Cove Aquatic Centre, libraries, sporting venues,
ferries and the St Leonards business and transport hub.
An initial assessment of
the proposed new routes, using criteria such as feasibility, cost and
strategic importance, was carried out by an independent consultant.
Council staff subsequently undertook a further assessment of the proposed new routes, with an emphasis on the potential environmental impact on bushland reserves.
Council recently undertook community consultation on the Draft Lane Cove Bicycle Plan 2013,
which included more detailed maps, a 5-year programme of works with
route priorities and a delivery programme for new bicycle parking
infrastructure within the Local Government Area.
received during the consultation period have been reviewed and
evaluated to determine whether or not to proceed with the proposed
bicycle routes and other amendments.
The Draft Bicycle Plan was considered for adoption by Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting of 2 December 2013. Council resolved to adopt an amended version of the plan
