Peninsula residents are being encouraged to get on their bikes, with the completion of three new sections of pedestrian and cyclist shared paths in the area, adding to the almost 160 kilometres of shared off-road path currently in operation across the Central Coast.

The three new shared paths add half a kilometre to the existing network and are located along parts of Memorial Avenue, Barrenjoey Road and Uligandi Street in Ettalong and Blackwall.

Central Coast Council’s Group Leader of Assets, Infrastructure and Business Mike Dowling said the creation of connective transport corridors is one of the key priorities on The Peninsula.

“Council is dedicated to improving the cycleway network on The Peninsula to encourage greater connectivity and improve accessibility within the local community,” said Mr Dowling.

“The establishment of an integrated cycle network in this area offers alternate transport options and improves recreational facilities and social engagement opportunities for both visitors and residents."

Council recognises the many benefits of cycling and supports initiatives that encourage more people to cycle across the Central Coast.

“Our integrated network forms the basis of Council’s objective to encourage cycling as a convenient, sustainable and healthy mode of transport, as well as an ideal way to experience and enjoy our magnificent region,” Mr Dowling added.

At this stage, more than 90 kilometres of further off-road shared path is proposed for the region.
