Shared Path – Peats Ferry Road, Asquith/Hornsby

Following community consultation held in May 2020, the Peats Ferry Road Asquith main street upgrade works will be commencing in early April 2021.

The works involve the installation of a 2.5m wide share path on the northern side of Peats Ferry Road from Galston Road to Wattle Street.  This shared path will connect into another section of share path that Council is constructing this financial year from Galston Road to Bridge Road (providing a new cycle connection to the Hornsby shopping district).

The footpath on the southern side of Peats Ferry Road will be widened to 1.8m to better service Asquith Boys High School and medium density housing in the local area.

New street trees of Tristaniopsis Luscious (Watergum) and Angophora Costata (Smooth Barked Apple) will be planted along the length of the road in a central planting bed, verge plantings and road side blisters.  These trees will provide shade and scale to the street and habitat for birds.

To improve safety, the pedestrian crossing on Peats Ferry Road between Citrus Avenue and Lodge Street will be relocated to the centre of the block, and the bus shelter located on the corner of Peats Ferry Road and Lodge Street will be relocated to near the driveway entry to Asquith Bowling Club.  A consolidation of bus stops will result in the deletion of the bus stop at 335 Peats Ferry Road (east of Bouvardia Street).  The existing bus stop outside of 325 Peats Ferry Road will be retained, and the existing bus stop to the east at 375 Pacific Highway (outside of the Newsagent in Asquith shops) will also be retained.

Work schedule

Works are expected to commence in April and will be complete in late 2021, weather permitting.

How will the work affect you?

Traffic controllers will be on site to manage traffic flow during construction.  Some of the works may be required to be completed as night works to reduce the impact on traffic flow.  Council thanks you for your patience during the construction period.
