Work on next stage of Urunga cycleway to commence
RESIDENTS and fitness enthusiasts of Urunga will be pleased to hear work on the next stage of the shared footpath and cycleway on Hungry Head Road is about to start.
The first stage heading south from Morgo Street playing fields will continue on stages two and three in a northerly direction to Urunga Boardwalk including a new shared pedestrian and cycle bridge over Station Creek.
As well, the path will continue south from the end of stage one and include a new shared pedestrian and cycle bridge over Pipe Clay Bridge.
Funding is currently being sought to continue the path for an additional 2km from Pipe Clay Creek to the Hungry Head Beach turnoff.
Cyclists and pedestrians will then be able to turn left to Hungry Head Beach or right to join up with the existing Pacific Highway.
Disruptions to motorists and pedestrians will be carefully managed throughout the project with traffic control in place when necessary.
It is anticipated that the project will be completed by the end of June, weather permitting.
The project forms part of the NSW Coastline Cycleway project that aims to build a 1400km cycling route along the entire NSW coastline.
It aims to avoid major roads and highways and to provide a continuous and safe route that supports active living for residents and visitors.
