Project status

Transport for NSW would like to thank the community for providing feedback on the preferred route for Stage 2, Kirrawee towards Cronulla. 

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

Feedback from the community will be used to inform the planning approval documents and detailed studies which will be placed on public display for community feedback later this year.

The community feedback will be responded to in a report which will be published on this web page. The community and stakeholders will be notified when the report is available.

Community input plays an important part in the successful delivery of a project and we encourage local residents, schools, businesses and the active transport community to provide their feedback.

Project History

Stage 1 opened in April 2020, delivering a 1.3km Active Transport Link between Sutherland and Kirrawee.

The Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for Stage 1 was on display from between 15 October to 2 November 2018. Planning approval was received in December 2018. The Determination Report provides responses to issues raised in submissions made during the exhibition period, and outlines the conditions of approval.

From the 19th April until 17th May 2021, Transport for NSW sought feedback from the community on the early concept design. A Facebook Livestream was held on Thursday 22 April to answer question and hear what others had to say about the project.This event was recorded, and is available for viewing via the Facebook event. Additionally, two community drop in sessions were held on 26 April and 5 May 2021.
