In progress

Project status

After consideration of potential route options inside and outside the rail corridor, a preferred route has been identified for the next stages of the Active Transport Link.

The preferred route for Stage 2 of the project will run predominately along the Kingsway, providing more direct links to local facilities and better connectivity to the existing cycling network.

The preferred route is outside and to the north of the rail corridor and connects key destinations including schools and higher education centres, town centres, hospitals, employment centres, commercial and retail precincts, and parks and recreational facilities

Next steps

Transport for NSW will invite the community to have their say on the preferred route, with community consultation beginning 19 April and running until 9 May. Feedback from the community will be used to inform the planning approval documents and detailed studies which will be placed on public display later this year.
