Speers Point to Glendale shared pathway
The Speers Point to Glendale shared pathway is part of the Council-adopted Cycling Strategy 2021, which aims to provide a connected, safe and functional bicycle network across Lake Macquarie City.
When complete, this shared pathway will link with the Glendale to Wallsend rail trail, which connects Lake Macquarie residents to bike routes that can take them to many suburbs in Newcastle and community facilities such as the University of Newcastle.
When will the work occur?
We expect to commence works in September 2019 to construct a shared pathway from Margaret Street to 412 Lake Road, connecting to the old Tramway alignment on the Waratah Golf Club property.
What does the work involve?
The works include:
- construction of a 3m wide concrete shared pathway
- installation of pedestrian activated signals at Princess Street
- safer pedestrian facilities on Margaret Street and continuous footpath treatment on Queen Street
- installation of parallel parking and kerb on the southern side of Jersey Avenue
- installation of kerb and gutter and formalised on-street parking at 418 and 416 Lake Road
- upgrading the existing bus stops on Lake Road
How might this affect you?
Council carefully plans this work and considers how it will affect the community. Every effort will be made to minimise any inconvenience to residents; however, during construction there may be some unavoidable temporary impacts such as:
- excavation work on roads and footpaths;
- potential noise and dust;
- construction traffic in the area;
- fencing of sites and equipment to ensure community safety; and
- traffic and parking access may be temporarily restricted.
Residents affected by the works will be contacted directly with further information.
