Comments on section 6 of the Pipeline Active Transport Corridor are now closed.
We are collating and reviewing all feedback received whether on this page, by email or in writing.
A full report on the outcome of engagement on this section of the corridor will be made available in the coming weeks.
What did we engage on?
We listened to feedback from our community, in particular local residents who were notified of the works commencing for Section 6 of the Pipeline Active Transport Corridor.
Work was paused at this location to allow for community input on the route options that were developed by the project team. Prior to consultation Council had a proposed route, however we had no preferred option for this section. We undertook consultation in order to choose a preferred option based on community feedback.
We sought your feedback on the four options for the route between Rangers Retreat Road and Bantry Bay Road. Three additional options had been developed based on the initial feedback from the adjoining residents close to Rangers Retreat Reserve.
Comments closed on Sunday 19 February.
The options explained
Option 1 – shown in grey on the plan below is a 3 metre Shared User Path following the contours within Rangers Retreat Reserve. This route minimises the number of driveway intersections and tree removal.
Option 2 – shown in pink, is a 3 metre Shared User Path with regrading and realignment in Rangers Retreat Reserve that maintains the area for use for informal field games. This realign will require a regrading of sections of the reserve to manage stormwater flows but has benefits in terms of improvement to the grassed area. This route minimises the number of driveway intersections and tree removal.
Option 3 – shown in blue, is a 3 metre Shared User Path following the pipeline corridor between Rangers Retreat Road and Bantry Bay Road then along Bantry Bay Road on the western footpath as a 2.5 metre wide shared user path. This route is longer to make the connection to the overbridge.
Option 4 – shown in red, is a 2.5 metre Shared User Path along the southern side of Garner Avenue and the western side of Bantry Bay Road. This route will have some impact on street trees and there are additional driveway intersections to address.
