Woolooware Bay Shared Pathway is now officially open to the public with ‘Stage 6’ connecting the Shorebird Reserve and Atkinson Road at Taren Point.
The NSW Government provided $2 million in funding for the project. I am delighted that this missing link to the Woolooware Bay Shared Pathway is now complete.
This will improve pedestrian and cycling safety thanks to a separate pathway that avoids heavy vehicles and traffic in the Taren Point industrial area.
Woolooware Bay Shared Pathway forms part of the 43.6km long Botany Bay Trail that facilitates safe walking and cycling around Botany Bay.
I am pushing extremely hard to progress the development of the Sutherland to Cronulla Active Transport Link, a shared pathway linking our town centres, schools and recreation spaces that will form the backbone of the shire’s cycling network and regional links.
Stage 6 has also resolved complex environmental issues in the area, including: land remediation; heritage list conservation; mangrove, saltmarsh and aquatic ecology protection; and the protection of migratory and endangered shorebirds and their habitat.
