Local and visiting bike lovers have a new safe place to ride in wine country with the opening of a multi-million dollar upgrade to Broke and Hermitage Roads.
The project included improvements to Hermitage Road and Broke Roads, a 10.6 kilometre cycleway and installation of tourist facilities including an information bay.
The concept was a joint initiative between Cessnock and Singleton Councils.
The councils combined to submit a successful funding application for $16.7 million from the NSW Government’s Resources for Regions program, which delivers improved infrastructure in mining-affected communities.
The upgrade was officially opened by Upper Hunter MP Michael Johnsen at a ceremony on Wednesday after about 12 months of construction.
