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
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
