Hombush Bay circuit to rival the Bay Run

19 June 2018 | Planning
Wheels are in motion for a world class walking and cycling circuit through Homebush Bay and along the Parramatta River thanks to a plan funded by a $90,000 grant from the New South Wales Government, said City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas.

“The grant, received from the Roads and Maritime Services 2016/17 Active Transport Program, will see the Homebush Bay Circuit be transformed into an innovative and connected track to rival Sydney’s famous Bondi to Coogee walk and the Bay Run,” said Mayor Tsirekas.

The plan, which will soon be on public exhibition, proposes that a world-class facility for walking, running and cycling be established on the foreshore area of Homebush Bay to seamlessly interface with the waterfront and celebrate the area’s unique history using innovative technology for wayfinding. 

“The proposed plan will help locals and visitors both navigate the circuit as well as interpret the area’s rich history and natural beauty, while also ensuring the Homebush Bay Circuit becomes a well-recognised and popular addition to the region’s existing attractions.”

The vision for the Homebush Bay Circuit is to provide a safe and comfortable walking and cycling environment, meeting the needs of users and user groups of all ages.  

The plan includes dedicated pathways for cyclists and pedestrians away from the general traffic and each other which are practical and secure, while also ensuring ecologically sensitive path designs in areas of abundant natural beauty and biodiversity. This means BOTH high intensity cyclists and pedestrians can experience the circuit at their own pace, enjoying the picturesque views of the natural environment.

“We are committed to protecting the environmental, cultural and social value of open spaces and foreshore areas, and this plan is evidence of that.”

“The Homebush Bay Circuit project is a partnership with the City of Canada Bay, the Sydney Olympic Park Authority and the City of Parramatta.”

“It is difficult to think of a better legacy from the site of the Sydney 2000 Olympics than a world-class walking and cycling network that interfaces the Homebush Bay waterfront, and I encourage the community to provide feedback when the plan is placed on public exhibition.”
