Bicycle Route Upgrades

Council is seeking community feedback before Sunday 10th February 2019 on two bicycle route upgrades in Artarmon and in Chatswood. Please take a few minutes to view the draft concept plans currently on display and and tell us what you think. Community members living alongside the Bicycle link will be contacted directly by Council.

The Willoughby Bike Plan provides a plan to meet Council’s aims of increasing cycling, reducing the impact of private motor vehicles on the region and promoting greater levels of community health.

These projects also align with the NSW Government’s aim of making bike riding safe, convenient and enjoyable.
