The City of Canterbury Bankstown is committed to encouraging bicycle use through the provision of safe and connected cycling facilities.
Council has developed a proposed route for the EW05 cycle route starting from the existing M5 shared path, at the intersection of Bexley Road and Wolli Avenue, through to Macquarie Road and the suburb of Earlwood, to the Cooks River Trail. When completed, Route EW05 will provide a direct cycling link between two of metropolitan Sydney’s key regional cycling routes.
This project is part of the City of Canterbury Bankstown’s continued commitment to providing for different transport options and further improving accessibility, as detailed in the Canterbury Bike Plan 2016. It’s proposed the cycle route will have a mixture of:
- Off-road cycle lanes;
- Off-road shared paths for pedestrians and cyclists;
- On-road mixed traffic lanes;
- Traffic calming improvements; and
- Intersection and signage upgrades.
