Following extensive community consultation, the Waverley Bike Plan was adopted by Council in 2013. It included an on-road bike route along Paul Street. This route will directly connect the Bondi Junction to Bondi Beach bike route along Old South Head Road with the Bondi Junction to Bronte Beach route through Waverley Park. As this road has low car traffic, this route was specified as mixed traffic, meaning that the bicycle riders share the road with motor vehicles with no separate bike lane. The Bike Plan identified that riders would also need to cross Bondi Road at the signalised pedestrian crossing.

The Proposal

This proposal is to formalise the bike route by installing:

  • On-road pavement markers to identify the route along both Paul Street North and South (to Waverley Park entrance)
  • Destination signage to Bronte, Bondi Junction and Bellevue Hill
  • Warning signage for motorists entering Paul Street North at Bondi Road.
  • A small section of shared path at Bondi Road to connect the on-road bike route to each side of the signalised pedestrian crossing
  • A new ramp for bikes to access the shared path directly from Paul Street North

Please see the detailed proposal in the document library for more information.
