Felicity Wilson MP, Member for North Shore, has announced plans with North Sydney Council Mayor Jilly Gibson for a new pop-up cycleway to give people more options to travel safely during the evolving COVID-19 situation across the coming months.
A key public health measure, the COVID-19 pop-up cycleway in North Sydney will make it easier and safer to ride to work, shopping, and education hubs, providing an alternative to catching public transport or driving.
“We are seeing a significant increase in people riding bicycles and we want to make it easier and safer for people to jump on their bikes, as families look to get to work, school, and other services,” Ms Wilson said.
Planning is being finalised for a new pop-up cycleway connection which will be installed along Pacific Highway between Alfred Street and West Street at North Sydney.
The cycleway will link the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the existing North Sydney cycling network on West Street and provide connections to North Sydney Station, North Sydney Demonstration School, and the Australian Catholic University.
