Design efforts are focused on the Tathra Public school and Kalaru township sections with work completed between the townships and the main Tathra urban construction from the Tathra Volunteer fire shed to Noojee Street underway.

Proposed program of works

The Funding Agreement between Transport for NSW (formerly NSW Roads & Maritime Services) and Council was received on 22 September 2017.

Construction has commenced in the Tathra urban stage of the Tathra to Kalaru bike track. These works include a 2.5m wide shared path and kerb in areas of Bega St which are closest to the path. The shared path will join the last stage at the Tathra Volunteer Fire Shed and continue to Noojee St. These works are expected to be completed by late February 2021. The next phase from Noojee St to the Tathra primary school is currently in the design phase as current plans are finalised.
