Footpaths and cycleways

Council has an ongoing program of planned maintenance. We only replace a footpath or cycleway after assessing a site for safety and condition.

Council looks after more than 100 km of off-road shared paths in the Tweed.

Shared paths are for both pedestrians and cyclists. When riding, please slow down when approaching children, older people and dogs.

Find out where to ride and walk in the Tweed and check out the Northern Rivers Rail Trail and Uki Mountain Bike Park.

Tweed Pedestrian and Bike Plan

The draft plan for the new Tweed Pedestrian and Bike Plan is now on public exhibition until Sunday 11 February 2024, marking the next phase after the initial community consultation.

Visit Your Say Tweed to make a submission, attend an online information session, learn more and to stay updated on the development of the Tweed Pedestrian and Bike Plan. This platform provides a wealth of resources and materials, allowing you to delve deeper into the specifics of the plan and participate in the ongoing conversation.

This plan will replace the existing Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan and is a crucial step forward in enhancing the pedestrian and bike network across the Tweed.

Community consultation has played a pivotal role in shaping this plan and we are grateful for the valuable input we received during the initial stages. As we move into the public exhibition phase, we invite you to continue being a part of this process. Your feedback is essential in guiding our ongoing investments in pedestrian and cycling infrastructure.

Key highlights of the Tweed Pedestrian and Bike Plan include:

  • 10-year action plan: The plan encompasses a comprehensive 10-year action plan that outlines our commitment to delivering essential pedestrian and cycling infrastructure. This long-term vision is aimed at creating a more accessible and sustainable Tweed.
  • Inclusive approach: To ensure the plan caters to the diverse needs of our community, we actively sought feedback from individuals with varying levels of cycling experience and all types of pedestrians. This includes people who walk, run, push a pram, use a mobility aid, mobility scooter, roller skate or skateboard. Your experiences and insights are vital in crafting a plan that truly meets the needs of everyone in our community.
