A critical section of what should be a marvellous bike path entry point from Umina to the fire trails south from Pearl Beach.

We are making comments to Council as part of their Bike Plan review.

Reasons for inaction include dangerous rocks but there was a road there from 1927 to 1954. The sewer line runs along the track alignment. No difference in engineering challenge than the Manly to Fairy Bower promenade.

There would need to be rock protection but the Austrians have the technology for avalanche and rock protection for roads.

Rock bolting is also an option.
