Cycleway to be completed in July
TWEED cyclists have reason to celebrate now that the long-awaited final link in the beachfront cycleway between Kingscliff and Cabarita will be completed in July.
Murwillumbah Cycle Club secretary Scott Newman said the cycleway was a positive step forward for Tweed cyclists.
“The cycle club encourages any new factor that will encourage cycling and awareness on the Tweed,” Mr Newman said.
Seaside Living, developer of the $750 million Seaside community, is completing the last 750-metre stretch of path, which will connect the existing cycleway-walkways already in place at Casuarina Beach and Salt Village.
Seaside project director Ron Barclay said the path would become an important community asset.
“This final stretch of the cycleway-walkway is highly anticipated, especially with our strong local contingent of walkers, joggers and recreational cyclists who will be able to enjoy more than 10 kilometres of continuous pathway when it is opened,” Mr Newman said.
“This is on track to take place in July and, once it has, lighting the path and opening it to the public will be our first priority.”
Construction of the popular beachfront boardwalk between Cabarita and Kingscliff first began in 2001.
