Work is underway to upgrade a section of the much loved Bay Run between Iron Cove Creek Bridge, Five Dock and the UTS Haberfield Rowing Club. The upgrade work will see the path widened to 4.5 metres to accommodate an asphalt, separated path for cycling and pedestrians and joggers.
The widening of the path will improve access around the Bay Run and will make it easier and more enjoyable for people using the path. The NSW Government has provided funding to Inner West Council for the project which is expected to be completed in the next few months.
Work is about to start on one of the missing links of the Greenway, an important urban corridor connecting Parramatta River at Iron Cove to the Cooks River at Earlwood. This section will link Parramatta Road to Marion Street. The works will include new lights, increasing the shared path width to three metres to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists, and rest stops for the comfort and enjoyment of users.
Work will begin in early June and take approximately 10 weeks to complete. The works will be carried out in two stages. Stage 1 is from Marion St to Lords Rd and Stage 2 is from Lords Rd to Parramatta Rd. The path will be closed in these two stages during the construction works. Alternate routes for users are shown in the Detour Plan. Detailed signages of the detour will be posted on site. Click here for more information.
If you haven't visited of late why not make a trip and see our first-ever commissioned public art work “Tree Cycle” by Inner West artist Graham Chalcroft which was installed earlier this year on the Hawthorne Canal foreshore near the City West Link bridge on Canal Road.
