Cyclists can look forward to safer riding on Beach Road between Batehaven and Surf Beach.
Eurobodalla Council has started work on four kilometres of on-road cycling amenity, with links to the existing shared pathway network.
The section of Beach Road between the Batehaven shops to Caseys Beach will include dedicated bicycle lanes, defined by line marking applied along the sealed road shoulders.
Between Caseys Beach and the Surf Beach shops, markers will be painted on the parking lane bitumen. Some sections will have ‘No Stopping’ signs installed, making it easier for cars to pass bicycles while observing the one-metre-separation rule.
There will also be new sealed road shoulders on the short strip of Beach Road at the northern end of Caseys Beach to complete the four kilometre section.
Allocating space to cyclists on both sides of the road provides increased safety. Additional line marking and signage will be installed at all Beach Road intersections between the Batehaven and Surf Beach shops to further improve safety for motorists and cyclists.
Commuters or residents can expect only minimal disruptions during the work. For more information on other safety upgrades for Beach Road, visit https://www.esc.nsw.gov.au/inside-council/project-and-exhibitions/major-projects-and-works/beach-road,-batemans-bay-road-upgrade.
The project is funded by Transport for NSW under the Fast Tracked Roadside Public Spaces Program in an initiative to stimulate transport alternatives in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and develop safe cycling routes.
