Chatswood to St Leonards Bicycle Route Improvement Plan

Update September 10, 2021 – WCC Traffic Committee has approved the plans for the two bike paths between Chatswood and St Leonards. 

  1. runs alongside the Pacific Highway from Chatswood to St Leonards

2. runs alongside Hampden Rd, through the Artarmon local centre and then runs along Herbert St to St Leonards.

APA still has concerns about the route through the Village along Hampden Rd:  Impact of proposed new traffic lights at Brand St on traffic flows, No detail of the bike path through Artarmon Village and how the interaction with parked cars, pedestrians would be managed. Removal of pedestrian refuge near Cleland Park, Loss of the turns into Cleg St westbound from Herbert St. We encourage members to make their views known to Council.
