Mott MacDonald has been appointed to design an active transport link between Sutherland and Cronulla in Sydney as part of the New South Wales government’s plan for the Australian state’s cycling infrastructure.
Transport for New South Wales commissioned the engineering consultancy to design a system for pedestrians and cyclists linking different neighbourhoods, rail stations and employment areas.
Mott MacDonald project director Matthew Stephens said: “This project will utilise a new standard developed by Transport for New South Wales’ Asset Standards Authority that would allow parts of the link to be located within the rail corridor, though separated from railway infrastructure to ensure safety. It could also act as a model for the development of other active transport links to utilise available space within rail corridors.”
The project is due to be completed by the end of this year.
