The Shire is set to benefit from funding as part of the WA Bicycle Network (WABN) Grants Program.
As announced on Friday by the Department of Transport (DoT), the Shire will receive over $500,000 between 2023 and 2025 for the design and construction of new shared pedestrian/bike paths.
The latest round of funding will see five projects delivered within the shire that will help improve the safety, connectivity and accessibility of active travel networks.
The funding is a great result for the Shire and it will be used towards the design and construction of shared paths in Witchcliffe, Augusta, Cowaramup and Margaret River.
Successful projects include Cape Leeuwin Trail shared path (funding towards the progression of trail design and implementation, subject to council approval and further engagement with Traditional Custodians), Redgate Road shared path, Hillview Road shared path, Tingle Avenue shared path and Duggan Drive shared path.
