Major Cycle Route (MCR) Northern Line Cycleway - construction


We are continuing work at the recently upgraded railway level crossing on Barnes Road, as part of the construction of the Northern Line Cycleway. This work focuses on constructing connections between the railway crossing and the new sections of cycleway, south (completed) and north (under construction) of Barnes Road.


To create safe and easy access from Barnes Reserve onto the new section of the Northern Line Cycleway, where it intersects with the crossing.

What are we doing?

  • We are constructing a shared path cycleway through the rail corridor between Tuckers Road and Sturrocks Road and between Barnes Road and Main North Road. The section through Barnes Reserve (which connects Sturrocks Road to Barnes Road) is already complete.
  • As part of the works to extend the cycleway, the railway level crossing at Barnes Road has been upgraded, so now we will complete the work to connect the cycleway from Barnes Reserve to the section under construction between Barnes Road and Main North Road via the railway crossing.

Road closure

  • While the road is closed on either side of Barnes Road railway crossing, a detour route will be in place, with signage to redirect traffic around the closure.
