Seeking funding for construction
Sixty seven comments were received during the consultation period between 21 August and 25 September 2020.
The feedback revealed that most people were supportive of the concept of a shared path through Brookvale, linking Warringah Mall and the B-Line to Dee Why, describing benefits to the community including a safer walking/cycling option and providing ‘family-friendly’ connections to shops, transport and schools.
The predominant concern that emerged in the comments was the issue of safety. Respondents felt that the proposed route through a highly industrialised area, with constant traffic entering and exiting businesses posed a risk for cyclists, as did the numerous road crossings and roundabouts along the route.
We are now actively seeking funding from the State Government to enable construction to commence.
We are planning an extension of the shared path network which would connect Brookvale B-Line and Warringah Mall to Dee Why.
The shared path is proposed along Pittwater Road, Orchard Street, Mitchell Road and Cross Street. The upgraded path would be 2.5km in length and have a typical width of 2.5m.
Shared paths provide wider and safer walking and cycling routes for our community allowing greater accessibility for prams, wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
