Beaches Link Consultation – Construction / Operational Impacts on Cycleway in Cammeray

The Beaches Link EIS is now on public exhibition at https://caportal.com.au/rms/bl  and virtual information session commence this week.

The Virtual Information Session (Cammeray) for the Beaches Link will be held on Thursday 14 January, 5-7:30pm. You can RSVP for this session at https://caportal.com.au/rms/bl?hview=modalConsultationSession .

The major area of concern for bike riders in Cammeray is for bicycle paths and bicycle routes through and alongside the Cammeray Golf Course which is a construction support site and also a site for motorway facilities under operation.  There is concern regarding the existing bicycle route along the Warringah Freeway from the Cammeray on ramp to North Sydney, access to and use of the Cammeray Golf Course shared path and any impacts of the separated cycleway along Ernest Street.

Also of consideration are impacts and opportunities on east west connections over the Warringah Freeway, previously covered in the Warringah Freeway Upgrade EIS consisting of Falcon Street shared path bridge, Ridge Street shared path bridge.

Another point of contention is the failure to include within the project scope a safe pedestrian and cycling connection from the existing regional cycleway in Naremburn to West Street Cammeray.
