8 January 2015 Key Cycleway Work Begins

Construction has started on a new cycleway along Solitary Island Way (formerly Graham Drive) in Sandy Beach that will link it to the new local road network on the northern beaches.

 

As part of the Pacific Highway upgrade from Sapphire to Woolgoolga, the NSW Government’s Roads and Maritime Service (RMS) provided $527,000 funding for a cycleway from Emerald Heights Drive to Sandy Beach Public School.

 

The 2.5 metre wide shared path/cycleway is expected to be completed in February, weather permitting.

 

There is an existing cycleway from the school crossing through to Coral Drive and Council will be seeking further funds to complete the cycleway from Coral Drive to the Highway overpass at the northern end of the village.

 

Council will also be starting work very shortly on cycleways at Headland Road at Sapphire and Hoys Road and Bucca Road at Moonee Beach.

 

Again, these works have been funded by grants from the RMS relating to the Highway upgrade from Sapphire to Woolgoolga.
