Connecting Our Pathways

The Shire continues to connect pathways throughout our community.

The Hillview Road shared path in Augusta has recently been constructed, completing a missing link in the Shire’s pathway network.

Residents can now walk, wheel or ride along a 168-metre path on Hillview Road, Augusta (between Hart Road and Investigator Avenue) completing the network from Augusta town centre into the Westbay Valley Estate.

Acting Shire President Tracey Muir said the State Government offers valuable ongoing support for these projects. 

“Funding goes a long way in assisting the Shire to connect older and newer infrastructure across our community,” Ms Muir said.

“It also has a positive impact on our community, encouraging residents and visitors alike to choose active forms of transport.”

Local Member for Warren-Blackwood Jane Kelsbie welcomed the completion of the path.

“More and more members of the community are choosing to wheel, ride and scoot around Augusta, and it’s important that we have accessible and welcoming infrastructure,” Ms Kelsbie said.

“I’m very proud that our Government continues to invest strongly in active transport infrastructure - it makes a real difference to local communities.”

This project has been jointly funded by the Shire and the State Government as part of the Western Australian Bicycle Network (WABN) Grants Program; a State funded initiative providing funding for planning, design and construction of active transport infrastructure. Through the WABN Grants Program, the State Government is committed to investing in safe, attractive and connected infrastructure that supports increased safety for people who walk, wheel or ride, improves access to strategic destinations, and increases cycle tourism opportunities.
