Wentworth Avenue Cycleway underway

Work has begun on the new cycle/foot way along Wentworth Avenue, from Bay Street, Pagewood to Dransfield Avenue, Mascot.  

Residents will have noticed the large drainage pipes piled up near Pagewood and council workers digging and preparing for the new cycleway to be laid at the Dransfield Avenue. There may be some disruption during the day with a section of Wentworth Avenue closed off to allow the works to be carried out from time to time.

The new cycleway is jointly funded by Council and the Federal Government’s “Jobs Fund” scheme. The new cycle/footpath will improve safety for those keen to walk or ride from Mascot to Eastgardens and beyond.  Our thanks go to the Hon. Anthony Albanese, Minister for Infrastructure and Local Government for supporting the project and to the federal government for providing the funding.  By making the grant available, and with a contribution from Council’s own budget, we should soon have a real boost for local cyclists, walkers and road safety.
