Bike Path – Castle Hill Road

Bike North has long advocated the need for a shared bike path along Castle Hill Road between Old Northern Road and Pennant Hills Road. Since the opening of the new Cherrybrook Metro, cyclists have been faced with either illegally using the footpath to access the station, or take their lives in their own hands by riding in the left hand traffic lane on this busy road.

Recently it came as a pleasant surprise to see work starting near the intersection of County Drive, west of the Cherrybrook station and it appears the path will go at least as far as Edward Bennett Drive, two blocks east of the Metro. Justin Holmwood is currently seeking information from Hornsby Council as to the extent of the construction however even the work currently being carried out will improve cyclists’ access to the Metro.
