Bike North has been advised of the temporary closure of the locally known “Artarmon Pathway” cycle route between Burra Road and Smith Street Artarmon. This arrangement took effect from Tuesday 28 January and will continue until 14 February 2020 due to the installation of a balustrade on the side of a bridge passing over the Pathway and minor localised works under the bridge.
An on-road detour route along Burra Road, Cooney Road, Artarmon Road and Smith Street will be provided during the Pathway closure.
Though users should note that this is an on-road detour route, if children are needing to use it, they can legally use any adjoining footpaths because in NSW children under 16 years of age and accompanying adults are permitted to ride on any footpath unless specifically forbidden.
A map of the relevant detour route shown in red is displayed above.
