SUCCESS STORIES

 

THE FERNELIGH TRACK

15km of walking and cycling path along the old rail corridor

Arguably the best path in Newcastle. It provides a safe off-road link between Lake Macquarie and Newcastle. 


A scenic route through bushland and wetland areas.

CURRENT PROJECTS

 

#LOVE30 KM/H CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED IN NEWCASTLE!

We’re joining the United Nations road safety campaign #Love30.

We’re calling for 30km/h streets as a matter of urgency across school zones, residential streets and business streets (e.g. Darby Street).

HOW CAN YOU HELP? WE’RE ASKING FOR PHOTOS OF YOU HOLDING SIGNS ACROSS NEWCASTLE! CHOOSE A STREET NEAR YOU!

Step 1: Print off one of the two images.

Step 2: Take a picture holding the printed image on a Newcastle or Lake Macquarie street.

Step 3: Upload the photo to this facebook post with the hashtag #Love30 (or alternatively email your photos to matthew.mclaughlin@uon.edu.au)


We’ll be using the best photos and sharing them widely.

30km/h speed saves lives, improves liveability and supports local businesses. All without impacting overall journey times.

#Love30 is this years theme for the UN Road Safety week, which runs from the 17th-21st May 2021.

Much more information available at https://www.unroadsafetyweek.org/en/home
