Green ribbon means tree is staying.

Hundreds of ribbons have been tied to trees along the route of a proposed cycleway connecting South Coogee with Kingsford.

The ribbons are part of an information program by Randwick City Council to inform the community about the impact of the project on trees.

What do the ribbons and signs mean?

A revised concept plan for the project has been developed following community consultation. This revised plan will see 27 mature trees saved due to the introduction of areas of shared path.

The revised concept plan will be considered by Council at its meeting on 25 June 2019.

The 1.9km cycleway is part of Randwick Council’s bicycle strategy to improve walking and cycling options along Bundock St, Avoca St and Sturt St and to connect with the new light rail terminus and other bike paths to the UNSW, Centennial Park and the City CBD.

Council staff  have listened to feedback from the community and amended the design of the cycleway to save as many trees as possible. In total, 27 mature trees, including significant eucalypt trees on Avoca Street.
