Community engagement report

We have identified a transit connection that will increase the use of active travel to help break the reliance on cars as the main mode of travel for local trips.

We are proposing a 2.5m shared path for pedestrians and bicycle riders which will provide an active travel connection between Mona Vale Beach and Winnererremy Bay as well as to commercial and industrial areas and Pittwater High School.

The proposal would also see improved pedestrian and cyclist crossing points at:

1. Bassett Street – 2.5m shared path on the southern side, between Barrenjoey Road and Mona Street

a. Improved crossing at Tengah Crescent and Perak Street

2. Mona Street – 2.5m shared path on the eastern side between Bassett Street and Pittwater Road

b. Upgrade existing pedestrian crossing to a raised combined pedestrian and bicycle crossing

This project is aligned with our Move – Northern Beaches Transport Strategy and will provide users with a wider path, safer crossings and greater accessibility for our community to walk and cycle. It would also result in both transport and recreational benefits for our community.

We exhibited these proposals between Tuesday 25 January and Friday 18 February 2022 to seek thoughts on each proposal. Feedback indicated support for the proposed shared path upgrade, highlighting the anticipated benefits for all path users, as well as the need to expand the network to connection to other destinations. Comments reflected safety concerns for path users, noting the industrial area was busy with vehicle and truck movements in driveways. support our grant application to the state government.

Community feedback supported our grant application. If the grant is approved we will also prepare a detailed design that will include the new raised pedestrian and bicycle crossing and crossing points in Bassett Street at the intersections of Tengah Crescent and Perak Street.

We anticipate construction will take place in the 2022/23 Financial Year.
