The Sutherland to Cronulla Active Transport Link (SCATL) has taken another important step forward with the NSW Government awarding the contract for construction of Stage 2 East between Miranda and Woolooware.

Sydney Civil has been appointed to construct and deliver the next stage of SCATL, which when completed will transform active transport between Sutherland and Cronulla. Work is expected to begin on site next month.

It’s fantastic to mark this important milestone in the delivery of this project as SCATL will make walking and bike riding safer and more convenient for the Shire community.

SCATL Stage 2 East will run along the Kingsway and the southern side of Denman Ave from just east of Westfield Miranda to the intersection of Denman Avenue and Gannons Road, with existing links through to the Captain Cook Playing Fields, Woolooware and Cronulla High Schools and Woolooware Bay.

This will provide safe active transport access to Sutherland Hospital and link Miranda and Caringbah train stations.

The NSW Government is upgrading the intersections of Kingsway, Willarong Road and Banksia Road at Caringbah to increase safety for both road and active transport users as part of this stage. The upgrade includes installation of new signalised pedestrian crossings at the intersection of Willarong Road and Kingsway.

Planning and design is ongoing for SCATL Stage 2 West (Oak Road Kirrawee to Jackson Avenue Miranda). Following previous community feedback, public display and consultation on a preferred route is expected to be open for submissions mid-year.

When all of Stage 2 is complete, SCATL will deliver around eight kilometres of pedestrian and bike paths between Sutherland and Caringbah to connect public transport, schools, hospitals, residential and retail precincts.

Funding for SCATL includes Stage 3 through Woolooware and Cronulla and detailed planning and community consultation will follow planning for Stage 2 West.
