Allambie Road to Ethie Road
Select your language
Right now, we're engaging with our community on Section 8 - Allambie Heights, of the Pipeline Active Transport Corridor project.
The Pipeline Active Transport Corridor will provide a 9.2km, 2.5 to 4 metre shared user path from Beacon Hill to St Ives, providing walkers and cyclists with a wider, safer connection to communities and destinations.
The off-road path will include new connections and upgrades of existing paths along the Sydney Water pipeline corridor.
There are eight sections, with funding provided through the NSW Government Places to Roam – Regional Trails Program and the Public Spaces Legacy Program.
Use this page to learn more about the project through our FAQs, and documents links, and jump to the sections of the pipeline that are available to learn more.
