A New Pathway and a New Connection

The Shire recently completed a new shared pathway that connects Bussell Highway to Clarke Road along the north side of Boodjidup Road.

Grab your bike and helmet and head to the Boodjidup Road pathway! Swing by the woodfired bakery and biodynamic cellar door or continue straight to connect to the Wadandi Track for a nature ride.

The new shared pathway is concrete, 650m long by 2m wide and links into the existing townsite pathway network at both ends, connecting residential areas located on the east of Bussell Highway to industrial, commercial and residential area west of the highway.

The pathway meets the Western Australian Bike Network (WABN) program objectives of supporting increased safety for people on bikes, connection and access to strategic destinations in addition to increasing cycle tourism opportunities. 

The WABN grants program provides an opportunity to complete missing links in the Shire’s townsite pathway networks by providing financial support for planning, design and construction.

The WABN Grants Program is a State funded initiative, administered by the Department of Transport. The Program is aimed at assisting local governments with the planning and implementation of local bike networks. Through this grant scheme the State Government matches funds with local governments who have successfully applied for the funding to assist with planning, design, and construction of bike riding infrastructure.
