Bronte Cutting

To improve pedestrian and vehicle safety and experience, Council is finalising plans to extend and install 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
  • pilot path made into a permanent 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.
  • sympathetic lighting installed along path, only to be used in the late afternoon to evening.
