A new shared path coming for Abbott Road

As part of our ongoing commitment to provide safer pedestrian and bicycle route connections across the Northern Beaches, we are building a new shared path along Abbott Road.

The new 2.5 to 3 metre wide shared path will provide greater accessibility for people to walk and cycle to schools, sporting fields and surrounding destinations.

135 comments were received during the recent engagement on the draft concept plan between 23 August and 19 September 2021 with most indicating a high level of support for the project.

Following the review of community feedback, the alignment of the path will be changed to the southern side of Abbott Road adjacent to the netball courts, between Pitt Road and Playfair Road. This decision was made due to resident concerns combined with coinciding works to the netball courts that will allow for the required path space to undertake the works.

The concept design was amended accordingly and approved by the Northern Beaches Local Traffic Committee on Tuesday 5 April, 2022.
