Updates and announcements

Work complete on shared pathways on Windang Bridge

Work to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists was completed in December 2016. The NSW Government allocated $3.57 million to widen the paths on both sides of the bridge from 1.5 to 2.5 metres to allow extra room for cyclists and pedestrians.

Work was carried out on the approaches to the bridge to improve accessibility and traffic barriers were upgraded to improve safety.

Activities including installing new signage on the shared paths and adjustments to the central median will be undertaken next year.

The upgrade started in February 2016 and work to widen the western pathway was completed in September, before work started on the eastern side.

Pedestrian access was maintained during work, with one path open to cross the bridge at all times, while all lanes were open outside of work hours to reduce delays.

Roads and Maritime thanks the community for its patience while this upgrade work was carried out.

Project background

The NSW Government is committed to working with Wollongong and Shellharbour Councils to make walking and cycling a safe and convenient transport option.

In 2010 Windang Bridge was identified as the “missing link” in the local cycleway network in the New South Wales Bike Plan.

The Bridge is an important pedestrian and cycle route for people living in and around the area. The path upgrade would improve facilities for cyclists and increase opportunities for people to get around.

Project features

  • The existing path will be widened from 1.5 metres to 2.5 metres to allow extra room for both cyclists and pedestrians
  • Improved paths and ramps will be built on the approaches to the bridge to improve accessibility
  • The traffic barriers and pedestrian rails will be upgraded on the bridge and approaches to improve safety.
