Overview

The 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.
