New South Wales launches drive to upgrade cycleways and footpaths

Funding of AU$39m (£21m) has been allocated for new cycleways and upgrades for walkers across the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW).

The funding will see more than 300 projects delivered across Sydney and other parts of the state including the Hunter, Central Coast, Illawarra, mid North Coast, the Riverina, New England, Northern Rivers, Southern and Western NSW.

“It doesn’t matter if you live in the city or the bush, this funding is great news for communities and will support the growing number of people who walk and/or cycle to get from A to B,” said minister for transport and infrastructure Andrew Constance.  “These projects will help build new routes to connect growing communities, provide better access to new walking and cycling paths and help link people to transport hubs, schools, shops and regional centres.”

Transport for NSW and Roads & Maritime Services will now work with local councils across the state on the delivery of each project.
