SCATL is a proposed cycleway and pedestrian path between Sutherland and Cronulla.
How is SCATL progressing?
Transport for NSW (TfNSW) is delivering the SCATL project with support from Council where required.
Stage 1 - between Sutherland and Kirrawee – has been completed.
Stage 2 - between Kirrawee and Caringbah – is being developed by TfNSW.
Stage 3 - between Gannons Road and Searl Road.
Council has recommended the cycle path follow the rail corridor to provide a safer, flatter, more direct link between Sutherland and Cronulla.
Since 2006, Council has been seeking state government support to construct SCATL.
Following a number of preliminary studies, a feasibility study was commissioned by the State Government to examine various route options in 2010.
In 2013, planning and design for SCATL commenced.
A Review of Environmental Factors for Stage 1 was conducted in November 2018 and planning approval was granted in December 2018.
While Council’s preference is for the path to be located within the rail corridor, this has not always been possible.
