Woolacotts Consulting Engineers has been awarded yet another cycleway project in Sydney – Castlereagh Street.

The new Castlereagh Street cycleway will run from Liverpool Street to King Street in the heart of the CBD. The cycleway is a bi-directional pathway, separated from the main road.

“We’re completing the civil engineering design, including modifications to kerbs and stormwater to ensure the path is safe for cyclists, as well as analysing services to ensure the works will not damage existing infrastructure,” said Principal Civil Engineer, Clare Woods.

“It’s all part of City of Sydney’s ongoing strategy to provide safe cycling paths throughout the city,” added Clare.

This important link will form part of Sydney’s growing bike network and help the NSW Government meet its target to double local and district trips by bike by 2016.

In addition to this new project, Woolacotts engineers have recently completed the design of Campbell Street cycleway – an on and off-road cycleway between Wentworth Avenue and Taylor Square. These works will make the area safer, useable and more appealing for pedestrians, bike riders and motorists, and is due to start construction soon. This connection is part of a broader plan to enable people to cycle from the city’s south, to Glebe and Leichardt in the inner west, and to the eastern suburbs.

“We’ve completed countless cycleway projects,” said Clare. “Our engineers are highly aware of the special issues associated with this type of infrastructure.”

Other recent cycleway projects include:

  • Union Street cycleway, Pyrmont
  • Kent Street cycleway, Sydney
  • College Street cycleway, Sydney
  • Parramatta Park shared path, Parramatta
  • Prospect Canal cycleway, Guildford
  • Broadway link cycleway, Ultimo
  • Eastern suburbs connections, Sydney
  • Bourke Street cycleway, Surry Hills
