Further to the first six pop-up cycleways already constructed that we wrote about here, on 23rd November 2020 Transport for NSW announce plans for a further 14 projects across Sydney and regional NSW.
These include the local government areas of North Sydney, Randwick, Inner West, Parramatta, Woollahra, Newcastle, Shoalhaven, Eurobodalla, Goulburn and Wollongong.
You can see more details of each project including maps of the Sydney suburban projects here.
Clearly mindful of the ‘bikelash’ that some of the first six projects have been, Transport for NSW was treading very carefully with the wording of their announcement with included, “Transport for NSW will be working with councils to finalise plans for new pop-up cycleways across Greater Sydney. Sydney communities will be notified at least four weeks prior to any construction commencing or changes to the local road environment.
“Working with local residents and businesses to address any concerns is a priority as Transport for NSW and councils navigate the planning of the new cycleways.
“This includes providing the right level of local access such as parking or loading zones for residents and businesses, ensuring access to properties is always available and enabling deliveries and short-term visitors where possible.
“Transport for NSW will continue to update the community on these temporary measures and will consult with them prior to any decisions being made on whether the cycleways will remain following the pandemic.”
