Feedback closes 14 June 2021

Council is seeking community feedback on proposed walking, cycling and streetscape improvements along Broughton Street, Clark Road, Kurraba Road, Wycombe Road and Harriette Street. The project is part of Council’s response to community demand for improved walking and cycling connections.

The key aim of the project is to improve the walking network, cycling network, and public domain, and ensure that each complements and enhances the function of the other. A parallel aim is that walking and cycling improvements are delivered with minimal or positive impact to other transport modes and parking.

The net impact on parking spaces across the project area is two (2) less spaces, although this could potentially improve to a net gain in spaces subject to the final layout installed on Wycombe Road. Thirty-one (31) spaces on Clark Road would be gained in the am peak as the existing clearway would not be required under the proposed plan.

The project forms part of Route 3 from the North Sydney Integrated Cycling Strategy and is a key connection for local and regional cycling trips that is already one of North Sydney’s busiest despite challenging conditions. This project proposes new infrastructure to separate riders from motor vehicles where the speed difference between the two is significant (particularly up hills), to make travel easier for both riders and motorists, improve safety, and enable a wider range of people to choose cycling as a transport option. In areas where cycle speeds more closely match vehicle speeds, riders will share the road with motor vehicles.

A concept plan and fact sheet outlining key features of each section of the project is available in the Document Library. These sections would form the basis of separate construction stages should the project proceed (these are not listed in chronological order). Hard copies can be viewed at Council's Customer Service Centre or the Stanton Library during opening hours.

IMPORTANT NOTE (20 MAY 2021): The notification letter (see Document Library) incorrectly identified that the right hand turn from High Street (west boundary) into Clark Road would be restricted. This turn would not be impacted by the proposed changes. The turn that would instead be restricted is the left turn form Clark Road (south bound) into High Street. This is proposed to reduce the delay on vehicles travelling towards Kirribilli, which will in turn reduce congestion at the intersection, and allow the clearway restrictions north of the intersection to revert to full time parking. This is correctly labeled on the concept plans (see Document Library).

If the project is supported by the community, Council will look to commence staged construction of the project early in 2022. The construction of this project would require funding support from the NSW Government.
