Updates and announcements

Night work on Windang Bridge shared pathway

Work is continuing to widen the path on the eastern side of the bridge. Work to widen the path on the western side was completed in early September.

We will be working during the night starting on Tuesday 25 October for about four weeks, from Sunday to Thursday between 7pm and 4am, weather permitting.

This will ensure that workers can safely install concrete barriers at night when traffic volumes are lower and to complete the project as quickly as possible.

We will continue working during the day from Monday to Friday between 6am and 3pm, weather permitting.

Further night work may be required to complete the project and we will update the community in advance of this work.

Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the work as one path will be worked on at a time.

During work hours one lane will be open in each direction, however two lanes will be open northbound for the morning peak traffic flow.

All lanes will be reopened outside of work hours, including during the afternoon peak traffic flow.

Motorists should allow additional travel time and plan their journey.

Work started in February this year 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. The project is expected to be completed by December 2016, weather permitting.

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.
