Background

Council wants to hear your thoughts about the draft detailed design plan found on the right-hand side of this page, to provide a safer and connected bicycle route linking Chatswood Central Business District with St Leonards Central Business District using a new shared path along Pacific Highway. Have your say in the survey below or pin the map to provide comment on a specific location along the route before 20 June 2021.


SUBMISSIONS NOW WELCOME ON DRAFT DETAILED DESIGN PLANS

Extensive community consultation on a proposed shared path in Pacific Highway linking Mowbray Road, Chatswood and Herbert Street, St Leonards was undertaken in April and May 2019.

This community feedback informed finalisation of concept design plans endorsed by Council in October 2019. The draft detailed design plans build on the approved concept and provide more information on the changes along the route.

Community feedback on the draft detailed design will assist finalisation of the detailed design to support the community’s needs.

The Pacific Highway shared path forms an important part of Council’s bicycle network.

Pacific Highway Shared Path will connect residents and visitors to retail, service, cultural and recreational uses and transport modes in Chatswood Central Business District (CBD), Lane Cove, Artarmon Local Centre and St Leonards CBD.

The detailed design plan has been funded in the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment Active Transport Links Program (Active Transport Link 1).

PROPOSED CHANGES TO PACIFIC HIGHWAY

Willoughby Council is committed to providing safe and accessible bicycle routes for the community. Safe bicycle routes encourage more people to ride, reduce congestion and support healthier and more active lifestyles. The Pacific Highway Shared Path will provide:

  • A shared path along the east side of Pacific Highway
  • Connection with bicycle links at Rimmington Street, Gore Hill Freeway, Carlotta Street, Campbell Street and Herbert Street (Active Transport Link 2), see below.
  • Bicycle connections and safety improvements at intersections including bicycle lanterns at traffic control signals and kerb build outs at other intersections.
  • Improved public domain with additional tree planting, bicyclist amenities, street furniture and landscaping along the route. A small number of existing trees will be removed but many more are proposed to be planted.
  • Relocating bus stops and shelters. Providing the shared path at the rear of bus stops where possible to improve amenity and safety.

Proudly funded by the NSW Government in association with Willoughby City Council

A brochure is provided to provide an overview of the project and the detailed design plans.

You can review the detailed design plans in the Detailed design plans for Pacific Highway Shared Path (simplified) section on this page. These plans have been developed to provide the changes in a simple non-technical format.

For those that wish to review the detailed design plans with engineering information, these are provided in the Pacific Highway Shared Path (engineering) section on this page.

Supporting information is also provided should this be helpful.

What happens next?

All comments will be taken into consideration and will contribute to the final detailed design plan.

The final detailed design plans will be considered by the Traffic Committee and forwarded to Council for its final decision.

When are the works planned for?

The next phase of the project is construction of the physical infrastructure. These physical works will follow Council approval of the detailed design plans and funding allocation.
