Six cycle and walking projects promised for Coffs Coast

THE LONG promised Pacific Highway cycleway from Sapphire to Woolgoolga is back on the drawing board as one of six local projects announced by the NSW Government.

The Member for Coffs Harbour, Andrew Fraser, said the projects will be delivered in partnership with Coffs Harbour City Council to provide more opportunities for people to cycle and walk, better connect communities, improve safety for pedestrians and bicycle riders and encourage more people to get active.       

Projects to be funded on the Coffs Coast are:

Cycleway on Rose Avenue from Marcia Street to Melittas Avenue

Shared user path from Shephards Lane to West High Street-Pacific Highway intersection

Cycleway along Pacific Highway from Sapphire to Woolgoolga

Improve pedestrian amenity from Orlando Street to Coffs Harbour CBD

Improve pedestrian amenity from Arthur Street to Coffs Harbour CBD

Design a pedestrian refuge along Arthur Street

Mr Fraser said with cycling more popular than ever before and walking trips on the rise, the NSW Government was providing the infrastructure needed to support local communities.

“These projects will provide better connections between local suburbs and to public transport hubs,” he said.

“If we want to encourage more people to leave the car at home and get active, we need to provide access to safe, convenient and connected walking and cycling networks.”
