A Win for Bike Riders and Pedestrians

The Shire is about to begin work on construction of a shared path that will connect Bussell Highway to Clarke Road alongside Boodjidup Road.

The pathway will be concrete, 650m long by 2m wide and has been designed to connect into the existing townsite pathway network. 

This project will help connect residential areas located on the east of Bussell Highway to industrial, commercial and residential area west of the highway. In alignment with the Western Australian Bike Network (WABN) objectives these projects support increased safety for people on bikes, connection and access to strategic destinations and increased cycle tourism opportunities. 

The Western Australian Bicycle Network (WABN) grants program provides an opportunity to address the missing links in our townsite pathway networks, through the availability to gain financial support for planning, design and construction.

The Western Australian Bicycle Network 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.
