With more of our community cycling during COVID-19, we are preparing to construct a key cycleway that will better connect our City for cyclists and pedestrians.

This $7 million regional cycling route will connect Concord with the Bay Run, enhancing safe connectivity through Five Dock and the rest of our City, to the inner west and Sydney CBD. This route is a key part of the City of Canada Bay’s new Bike Plan which is being developed for our entire area.

Project background

The NSW Government is funding this $7 million project as part of the Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program (PRUAIP). The program brings state agencies and councils together to work collaboratively on the delivery of projects to improve open space and active transport links along the Parramatta Road corridor.

The City of Canada Bay has been working closely with key stakeholders to design a regional cycling route that will suit the needs of our community as much as possible. We are now sharing detailed concept plans which show the various treatments along this route. The route runs from Patterson Street, Concord, through Canada Bay and Five Dock, culminating with improved access to the celebrated Bay Run.

The cycleway comprises of a mixture of treatments including:

  • Separated cycle lanes
  • Off-road shared paths for pedestrians and cyclists
  • On-road mixed traffic
  • Traffic calming improvements
  • Intersection and signage upgrades.

Council has been developing the route since mid-2019 with a focus on being as low impact to residents and as functional as possible. The route and the treatments along it have been identified based on analysis of factors including current cycling and vehicle traffic, anticipated future trends, site constraints, and more.
