The next two stages of the Byron to Suffolk Cycleway project are now well underway; with work on the central and northern sections the focus in recent weeks.
Works to widen the existing shared path between Old Bangalow Road and Arakwal Court started in June 2020 and asphalting is now complete. Asphalt resurfacing between the Browning Street roundabout and Old Bangalow Road was completed in May in preparation for the construction of the on-road cycleway.
“We are moving through this work really quickly now and it is exciting to see our vision for this cycleway coming together, providing safer connectivity between Byron Bay and Suffolk Park for both pedestrians and cyclists,” Director of Infrastructure Services, Phil Holloway, said.
“We know from the Byron Town Centre Masterplan process that one of the strongest held desires of the Byron community is to create a more cycle and pedestrian friendly environment. This project goes a long way towards achieving that goal,” Mr Holloway said.
In addition to the widened shared path, an on-road cycleway will be built in the northern section. The project also includes the installation of new pedestrian and cycle crossing points, improved line marking and signage.
