Improved bike routes - St Peters

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

A safer connection for bike riders is being planned between Sydenham Station and the Princes Highway at Mary Street, St Peters. Improving this existing bike route will make it more convenient and enjoyable for bike riders to move around the Inner West, as well as between Marrickville and the City via the Bourke Road Cycleway.


Review the detailed designs today

Following community feedback in October 2019, detailed designs have been prepared for a two-way separated bike lane along Burrows Avenue and improvements to the existing on-road bike route along Mary Street, Bakers Lane, Grove Street, Henry Street and George Street.

The detailed designs have been prepared to 90% completion to show the extent of anticipated changes. Three parking spaces will be relocated along Burrows Avenue. We anticipate four parking spaces will be removed from across the route.

    Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the route and treatment options. You can read about what we heard in the engagement outcomes report.

    We will be recommending Option A to the elected Council (kerb separated cycleway on the southern side of Burrows Avenue and introduce an on road cycle route with improved line markings and signage eastbound.) There will be no changes to parking.
