After the success of the learn-to-ride bike track at Twickenham Avenue Reserve North Kellyville, The Hills Shire Council has agreed to build another three tracks next to established local playgrounds!
A learn-to-ride bike track at Coolong Reserve in Castle Hill is officially under construction, with the track cut into the ground and concrete poured. We checked it out last week and it won’t be long now!
In addition, the Council is due to start construction on new learn-to-ride tracks at Crestwood Reserve Baulkham Hills and Centenary of ANZAC Reserve Kellyville.
Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said she is proud Council is investing in facilities that promote road safety, and encouraged a healthy and active lifestyle. “As the Mayor of The Hills Shire and a mother of two young children, I am very proud Council is investing in facilities like the Coolong learn-to-ride bike track,” Mayor Byrne said. “It’s important that we teach young children the skills, as well as the fundamentals of safe riding in an environment that mirrors real conditions experienced on roads and paths.”
The tracks will incorporate pedestrian crossings, stop signs and roundabouts.
