Transport for NSW is planning to install pop-up cycleways on Todman Avenue, Kensington and High Street, Randwick to give people a safe option for travel during COVID-19.
A key public health measure, COVID-19 pop-up cycleways are designed to make it easier and safer to ride to employment, shopping, and education hubs, providing an alternative to catching public transport or driving.
Transport for NSW will work with Randwick City Council to finalise the plans for the new pop-up cycleways. The community will be notified at least four weeks prior to any construction commencing or changes to the local road environment.
This includes providing the right level of local access including parking or loading zones for residents and businesses, ensuring access to properties is always available and enabling deliveries and short-term visitors where possible.
High Street, Randwick: planned to start at the corner of Anzac Parade and running along High Street to Botany Street, the cycleway is about one kilometre long. The route provides improved access to the University of NSW and connects to existing cycling facilities on Wansey Road and on Anzac Parade, Randwick.
Todman Avenue, Randwick: this route will upgrade the existing on-street cycleway on Todman Avenue. It connects the existing cycleway on Bourke Street, Waterloo with that on Doncaster Avenue, Kensington and links Waterloo with the University of NSW and Royal Randwick Racecourse.
