Submission on DA-2017/179 – Cook Cove Southern Precinct
The Roads and Maritime Services of NSW are building the final section of the Newcastle Inner City Bypass from Rankin Park to Jesmond.
At the northern interchange, the current plans are to remove the shared cycle/foot path between Jesmond Park and Jesmond and replace three signal crossings over eight lanes of traffic.
Bicycle NSW are in consultation with the RMS on this issue and are working hard to impress on them how greatly this will impact bike riders who use this infrastructure.
Local bike riders and Bicycle NSW members are campaigning strongly to have the RMS review their plans for this cycleway. You can log on to http://kissyourpathgoodbye.com/ for details about how you can have your say in this matter.
Submissions to the RMS close on December 16th 2016.
