Cycling

More and more people are cycling in 2022 and TfNSW is pro-actively supporting this as it works with Waverley and other Councils to develop new  cycleways. The Transport for NSW bike riding webpage provides information about these new cycleways and how to get started using your bicycle to get around Sydney.

Bondi Junction Cycleway

The Bondi Junction Cycleway will provide a separated bike path along Oxford Street, Spring Street and Denison Street between Bondi Road (connecting to the Old South Head Road shared path) and Centennial Park. Learn more about the Bondi Junction Cycleway and stay updated as works progress.

Construction of the Bondi Junction Cycleway between Bondi Road and St James Road (Oxford Street) is now complete and was opened on June 14 2022.

Construction of the final section between St James Road and Centennial Park will commence soon and is scheduled to be completed later this year, weather permitting.

Check out the Bondi Junction Cycleway FAQ brochure for more information about how to use this great new cycleway.

Queens Park Cycleway

Waverley Council has worked with Centennial Parklands and Randwick Council to develop a pedestrian and cycling path along Queens Park between York Road and Carrington Street. Centennial Parklands is responsible for the delivery of this project which is funded by Transport for NSW. This bike path is now complete except for an upgrade to the York Road intersection.

Bicycle Strategy and Action Plan

The Bondi Junction and Queens Park Cycleways were major projects planned under Waverley Council's Bike Plan 2013. In 2022, with the community’s help we will develop a new Bicycle Strategy and Action Plan in line with the community’s raised expectations.

In 2021 we asked the community how they felt about riding in Waverley and what we need to do to make Waverley a more inviting place and support bike riding for transport and recreation.

The key message received through the survey was that although 85% of respondents were frequent or regular bike riders, 69% felt unsafe riding around Waverley. 95% of survey respondents were comfortable riding on separated bike paths, where only 19% were comfortable riding with mixed traffic in a 50km/h zone.
