CONTINUING PROGRESS ON THE BELUBULA RIVER WALK

One of the most important community projects undertaken in Blayney in recent years is continuing to grow and evolve.



The size and scale of the Belubula River Walk initiative extends along the waterway from one side of the central business district to the other and has been hailed as a wonderful addition to the town’s infrastructure.


Member for Bathurst Paul Toole has been a massive supporter of the

Walk since its inception and has welcomed the completion of Stage 4 of the roll out of the ambitious project.


He said funding of more than $457,000 paved for the way Belubula River Walk, Stage 4 – included the recent sealing of the road and carpark at the end of Charles St and the concrete footpath from there to Heritage Park.


This follows on from the completion of the board walk at the Belabula on the southern side of Newbridge Road which has transformed a previously weed-ridden and tree infested area into something special with native tree plantings, seating and solar lighting providing a safe recreational asset for the community.


In 2019 funding of $310,052 from the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund helped kick start the project with the construction of a 720 metre long, 2.5 metre path from Dakers Oval near IGA, along Henry Street to the existing paths network at the school bus stop in Martin Street.


Mr Toole said the project has been hailed as a success story and a wonderful rejuvenation of a very picturesque area of the town.


“In the past that section of the river was pretty much an unused eyesore. Now it’s being transformed into something really special,” he said.


“Completion of stage four now means the loop has been closed and residents can make a return, round trip from start to finish.”
