Council is currently reviewing its 2013 Bicycle Plan which is a five-year strategic plan that outlines the delivery of cycling infrastructure and promotional programs for the community. Council engaged consultants ptc. to undertake a review of the 2013 Bicycle Plan and develop the Draft 2019 Bicycle Plan.
The Draft 2019 Bicycle Plan (40MB) provides a framework for Council to develop a connected bicycle network, improving links to existing routes and making cycling more accessible for people of all ages and abilities.
One of the main objectives of the Bicycle Plan is to set out an action plan on how to deliver on the commitment to a more cycling friendly community.
The Draft 2019 Bicycle Plan focused on nine (9) specific routes identified by Council based on its strategic importance. It is important to note that Mowbray Road and Centennial Avenue (between Mowbray Road and Epping Road) have been reviewed in detail by Council as such, did not require ptc. to undertake this review. These two (2) routes have been included in the Draft Plan.
The remaining local routes have been included in the Draft 2019 Bicycle Plan and are consistent with the 2013 Bicycle Plan.
The nine (9) routes audited and reviewed by ptc. are as follows:
- Pacific Highway
- Longueville Road
- Burns Bay Road
- Centennial Avenue/Burns Bay Road – (south of Epping Road)
- River Road
- Greenwich Road
- Northwood Road
- Tambourine Bay Road
- Lane Cove Business Park
