Greenways and cycling routes

We're working to improve cyclist safety on our local streets, improve access to services and facilities, encourage active lifestyles and increase cycling as a mode of travel. The City of Charles Sturt is working in conjunction with the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure.

You can read our Strategy for Walking and Cycling.

There are special Cycling Maps to see cycling routes in our City. On local streets that are best suited for cycling, there are painted bicycle logos and blue signs on all of the streets designated in the Bikedirect network.

Greenways

A Greenway is a cycling route made up of local streets and paths next to the railway line. It is signed with different painted logos called sharrows. A sharrow is a bicycle logo with two chevrons or arrows above it. These are placed closer to the centre of the street, unlike the standard bicycle logos which are placed next to the kerb. The sharrows are intended to position cyclists away from parked cars (away from the ‘door zone’).

In the City of Charles Sturt we have a greenway along the Outer Harbor.

Bicycle logos & sharrows alert other road users to expect cyclists and remind people to share the road safely. The logos, sharrows and signs make it easier for cyclists to follow the route. They do not designate a particular part of the street for the exclusive use of people riding bikes nor do they affect parking or vehicle access.

When driving on a Greenway route or a local street that is used by cyclists, be alert for people riding bikes. Please remember to pass cyclists at a safe distance. Cyclists travelling along local streets including the Greenway route need to follow the road rules.
