Bellingen Shire Council has commenced construction of the next stage (stage 4) of the Hungry Head Shared Cycle Pedestrian Path.  This section will extend the path a total of 1.4 km from the Pipeclay Creek Bridge to the Hungry Head Beach turnoff on Hungry Head Road.

The works will be managed under traffic control from Thursday 16 November until Friday 1 December 2017. Motorists may experience short delays at times however the majority of works will be off-road with minimal disruption to road users and the wider community.

Deputy General Manager Operations, Matt Fanning said “this is good news for cyclists and pedestrians as this now extends the current 2km long pathway for an additional 1.4km.  Cyclists along Hungry Head Road will be able to turn left to Hungry Head Beach or right to join up with Ginagay Way.

Stage 1 of the project included the construction of a 2.5 metre wide pedestrian/cycle path from the Morgo Street playing fields, south for approximately 1.1km.

Stage 2 included a continuation of the 2.5 metre wide path northward from Morgo Street playing fields to the Urunga Boardwalk including a new shared pedestrian and cycle bridge over Station Creek.

Stage 3 of the project continued south from the end of stage 1 and included a new 2.5 metre wide shared pedestrian and cycle bridge over Pipeclay Creek Bridge.

Future funding will enable the path to be continued further south to connect with Ginnagay Way.
