Waverley Council is inviting feedback on its Draft Waverley Bike Plan 2013 to build up our bike network in the right locations to benefit all Waverley residents, visitors and commuters.

A medium-term plan, the Draft Waverley Bike Plan 2013 identifies and prioritises projects to improve cycling access and safety, and will involve working with the community, Transport for NSW and the Waverley Traffic Committee to help to make cycling in and around Waverley easier and more accessible.

It proposes upgrading the six priority routes and providing clear directional signage along these routes to fill the gaps in the cycleway network:

  • Bondi Beach to Bondi Junction and City
  • Bondi Beach to Rose Bay
  • Bronte Beach to Bondi Junction
  • Bondi Junction to UNSW
  • Bronte Beach to Centennial Park
  • Coastal Cycleway

The plan includes working with Transport NSW and the community to develop a high quality cycle route from Bondi Junction to the City, which would link to the proposed bicycle path along Oxford St at Centennial Park. The plan also recommends investigating the option of a two-way separated bicycle path, which would involve traffic and impact analysis, design and further consultation with the community.

Existing shared paths will be upgraded with new pavement marking and new signage where required. This will be supported by an awareness campaign to improve cycling and pedestrian behaviour on shared paths.

Council will continue to run programs and activities to increase cycling participation as well as looking for opportunities to increase bike parking at our commercial centres and beaches.
