Bronte Cutting

To improve pedestrian and vehicle safety and experience, we installed a permanent footpath through Calga Place, Bronte Cutting and up to Macpherson Street.

Bronte Cutting forms part of one of the most significant coastal walks in the world. The Bondi to Bronte coastal walk attracts an estimated one million walkers per year and during peak times, as many as 500 pedestrians per hour use Bronte Cutting. The overwhelming success of the walk resulted in the need to review some of the existing ‘weak spots’ for pedestrians – most notably an almost 500 m stretch of Calga Place. In this location, pedestrians have to walk out on the road, shared with vehicles accessing beach parking.

Included in the works:

  • upgrade existing footpath
  • extend footpath to Macpherson St
  • 1 x Bronte Surf Life Saving Club parking spot turned into motorcycle parking to create space for widened path – as agreed by the Club.

Construction started June 2021 and were completed late September 2021, weather permitting.
