Section of shared path at Quakers Hill, closed (north side of M7)
Due to an unforseen incident, a section of shared path will remain closed at Quakers Hill, until repairs can be completed, in May 2016.
The section of affected path is between the entry/exit points where Lovegrove Drive/Rickard Road and Eastern Road, Quakers Hill connect to the path (on the north side of the M7). The closed section is not affecting access to the main shared path (on the south side of the M7).
The section of path closure is between entry points 12 and 14 on the shared path map.
Detour signage will be in place during the closure. Cyclists and pedestrians will be able to continue to enter and exit the shared path at the overbridge from Eastern Road, Quakers Hill (point 14).
Once the section of path is re-opened, signage will be removed and an update provided. For more information, please contact us.
Check back regularly for updates on traffic impacts and information on planned maintenance programs.
