Congrats to Willoughby Council – Planning Minister opens new bike path in Artarmon

It was a lovely sunny morning today when the Planning Minister, Rob Stokes, opened the new shared path in southern Artarmon Industrial Area on Frederick Street. Also present was the Willoughby Council Mayor Gail Giles-Gidney, Council staff and Bike North members Steph and Steve Croft.

The Minister was so welcoming for a chat about cycling issues on the lower North Shore. He had a good understanding of some of our issues, others he was keen to learn, especially when he may be able to address them directly. Such a positive morning.

The new shared path connects the Pacific Highway to Herbert St, St Leonards from Broadcast Way along Campbell Street, Reserve Road and Frederick Street.

This construction was funded under a $3.4 million package from DPIE which also includes the detailed design of two regional bike routes between Chatswood and St Leonards, currently on exhibition on Willoughby Council HaveYourSay, closing on Sunday 20 June. Today’s new shared path will link the future two bike routes near the Royal North Shore Hospital, Bunnings and SBS.
