The pathway between Gipps Rd., Smithfield and Davis Rd., Wetherill Park is closed. A construction fence has been installed from the Hyland Rd, T80 busway through to Gipps Rd completely shutting off most of the pathway all around the sporting fields.
There is no signage warning of the closure or why the fence has been installed. :(
No alternative route has been signposted. :(
You have to ride on the roadway along Gipps Rd past Long St, up to Hyland St..as the fencing comes right up to the edge of Gipps Rd. :?
that's the way it works in Australia
That's the way it works in Australia if you allow it to.
Ring up the Mayor and complain. Get your cycling mates to do it as well, letters to the local State Member and the local newspaper. Provide a photo-opportunity as you manhandle the fence back out of the way, get on the 6:30 TV news.
New shared path almost finished along the Westconnex above ground works in Haberfield, between Waratah Rd and Parramatta Rd. This section is south of Ramsay Rd. Note attention to detail around sign posts. Why they couldn’t widen the path around the obstacle is beyond me. Obviously the budget didn’t extend to a smooth continuous slab path either, but at least you can ride along there to Bunnings.
FFS. TfNSW and RMS really do treat cyclists with contempt at every opportunity, don't they?
Some photos of the works and existing bike links along the City West Link from Timbrell Drive to Parramatta Rd. Disappointing they did not do a better job of a bike crossing at Waratah St so you could get across to Fivedock.
