Consultation has concluded

As part of our commitment to improve pedestrian safety and amenity, we are proposing a new shared path adjacent to a tributary of Fairy Creek between Gilmore and Vickery Streets, Gwynneville. The proposed path will also provide linkages between Acacia Avenue and Greenacre Road.

The Fairy Creek Corridor is a unique open space that is highly valued by the local community, within two kilometres of the Wollongong CBD. The Fairy Creek Corridor Master Plan was developed with input from the community and adopted by Council in March 2019. As a result, this project has been prioritised for delivery from that plan. The 2.5m wide shared path will provide an important east-west link, as identified in Council’s Cycling Strategy 2030 and will serve as an additional connection with local schools and public transport.

Interpretive artwork will celebrate heritage by showing the earlier tramway link from Mt Keira to the harbour. There will be street tree planting in accordance with the Urban Greening Strategy. Existing trees will be retained and woodland edge planting along existing vegetation to suppress weed growth adjacent to the shared path.

Construction of the Fairy Creek Shared Path is scheduled for next financial year.
