RESIDENTS have raised concerns over a proposal to provide a cycling link from Bulli Railway Station to Bulli beach.

Wollongong City Council has put forward a proposal for the new shared bicycle and pedestrian path.

The path will run from Park Road, along Franklin Avenue, past Bulli Railway Station to Ursula Road, following the southern boundary of Bulli Park, finishing at Trinity Row.

The cycleway will pass Waniora Primary and Bulli High Schools.

Construction of the Ursula Road section is intended to commence in Autumn 2021.

Residents have raised concerns over the lack of shade trees along the section of the shared pathway next to Bulli Park, and safety issues at the intersection of Park Road and Franklin Avenue.

The Council is asking for community feedback by visiting Wollongong Council’s engagement page. Submissions on the proposal close on December 21 2020.
