Bicycle Strategy

Front coverThe Marrickville Bicycle Strategy builds on the previous (1996) Strategy, aiming to further improve conditions for cycling in Marrickville through a four point action plan consisting of:

  1. A bicycle network plan made up of high quality regional routes and more modest local connecting routes
  2. A bicycle parking plan which applies to the public domain, private developments, schools and Council facilities
  3. A plan for improving integration of cycling with public transport through provision of bicycle parking at railway stations and major bus stops, and by facilitating that cycling access to stations
  4. A plan for creating bicycle-friendly streets and neighbourhoods by ensuring that all of Council's roadway designs and works consider the needs of cyclists, e.g. cycling access through road closures.

The strategy also includes an implementation schedule for the Newtown to Petersham section of Regional Route 7, which is intended to serve as a pilot project to guide the implementation of the other Bicycle Strategy routes. The entire network would be implemented over ten years at a total estimated cost of $7.2M. It will however be necessary for Council to vary the timing of implementation according to available funding, local priorities and opportunities to fund works through other processes. 

Further detail is included in the report to the 14 August 2007 meeting of Council's Technical Services Committee and within the Bicycle Strategy report itself. Both are available for download below.
