KEEP ON WALKING: FOOTPATH PROGRAM FORGING AHEAD IN THE VILLAGES

The push to improve the network of footpaths across the villages in Blayney Shire is pushing ahead.


Member for Bathurst Paul Toole inspected the latest works being carried out in in Millthorpe.


This includes Glenorie Road where the project has been completed while the Elliot Street loop is expected to be finished by the end of this month.



Mr Toole said funding of more than $800,000 from the NSW Government Active Movements Strategy projects has already seen Lyndhurst benefit from the construction of shared pathways.


“In 2022 the Mt McDonald Road and Marsden Street section from Capital Park to the local primary school was completed, as well Coombing Street from the footbridge to the showground in Carcoar and along Eulamore Street,” he said.


“And now we are set to see the focus move to Newbridge this month where Three Brothers Road will have shared pathways installed from Gladstone Hotel to the Showground.”


Mr Toole said the new footpaths allow for better connectivity for residents living in the village.


“They provide pathways where you can exercise by going for a walk and even take the pram or stroller,” he said.
