Stage 4 of the Cessnock Road Cycleway – around 500 metres of cycleway from Maitland Park to Fishery Creek Pedestrian Bridge, fencing, and a median island crossing at Walker Street – is finished.

Work continues on Stage 2 of the project from Fishery Creek to Dagworth Road to connect already completed stages. All stages should be done by June.

We are pleased to continue work on the delivery of the Cessnock Road Cycleway Project which will link Gillieston Heights to Maitland CBD,” said Infrastructure Project Engineer Chris Pinchen.

Once complete, our community will benefit from greater access to Maitland Park and Maitland businesses, as well as the positive impacts that outdoor activity adds to the health and wellbeing of our community.”

The Cessnock Road Cycleway Project consists of approximately 2,240 metres of 2.5 wide concrete cycleway commencing from James Leslie Drive and finishing at the existing pedestrian overpass at the New England Highway near Walker Street.

The $2.45 million project has been funded through Council’s developer contributions asssociated with the Gillieston Heights residential development, capital funding and a $950,000 grant under the Stronger Country Community Funds Round 1.
