Sutherland to Cronulla Active Transport Link

Sutherland to Cronulla Active Transport Link

The Sutherland to Cronulla Active Transport Link aims to improve access to urban centres in order to reduce congestion on roads and pressure on rail and bus infrastructure whilst promoting a healthier lifestyle.

The NSW Government has committed to working with councils to identify and co-fund local bicycle infrastructure and connect local bicycle networks to key destinations in the state. In October 2013, The Minister for Transport committed to supporting the detailed planning and design of Sutherland to Cronulla Active Transport Link. 

The Corridor extends approximately 10km and runs west to east between Sutherland and Cronulla generally following the rail corridor of the Illawarra Line and the adjacent road network. Approximately 33% of the population of Sutherland Shire live within 1km of railway corridor, however the area suffers from high car-dependency. Within 1km of the study corridor, there are 27 schools, 7 town centres, employment areas and significant recreational opportunities. For these reasons, the SCATL corridor has the potential to become a key driver in facilitating modal shift towards active transport.

Architectus’ Urban Design Study aims finalised a preferred route for the Corridor, developed an urban design strategy for the overall route, prepare concept plans for the 7 (seven) local areas of Sutherland, Kirrawee, Gymea, Miranda, Caringbah, Woolooware and Cronulla, and considered the interfaces of the proposed bike route with each of these local areas and with relevant open spaces.
