Wollongong Council is calling for feedback on two projects as they work to improve cycling across the region.
Firstly, Council is planning the next stage of the Grand Pacific Walk , which will see a shared path and a new viewing platform built south of the bridge at Clifton.
Council is now calling for community feedback on the proposed concept plan which will be a shared space for walkers and cyclists.
The new section of path will run between the existing footpath at Moronga Park, past the Clifton Hotel and on to the existing footpath adjacent to number 347 Lawrence Hargrave Drive.
An Environmental Impact Statement is currently being undertaken, which requires an ecological investigation to assess the impact of the proposed path to existing vegetation.
Council says this is one of the most constrained sections along the Grand Pacific Walk with Lawrence Hargrave Drive located closely on the western side. Sections of this proposed pathway will need to be constructed under traffic control which could cause some minor traffic delays during construction.
Meanwhile, Council is looking to improve cycling in the Northern Illawarra by modifying roads in Thirroul.
Plans are in place to put road markings and speed cushions on Station, McCauley and Harbord Streets to link the station to the beach.
Submissions for the Clifton section of the Grand Pacific Walk close Monday 17 August and feedback can be submitted by:
