A new concrete footpath in Dundas Street Miners Rest linking intersecting streets to the Miners Rest Primary School is the biggest project completed this financial year through the City of Ballarat Footpath Program.
In the past two months more than 1700 square metres of new concrete footpaths have been constructed around Ballarat including work in Scotts Parade, Learmonth Street, Hocking Avenue, Joseph Street, James Drive, Magpie Street and Dundas Street and adjacent to Lumen Christie Primary School.
Work to construct another 2265 square metres of paths is schedule to be completed by December. It will involve:
New concrete footpaths:
- Hocking Avenue, Mt Clear 210 sq. m
- Vickers Street, Sebastopol 225 sq. m
New asphalt footpaths:
- Barkly Street, Bakery Hill 90 sq. m
- Main Road, Ballarat East 900 sq. m
- Humffray St, Brown Hill 180 sq. m
- Humffray St, Central 660 sq. m
Growth and Development Portfolio Councillor Noel Perry said the footpath works contributed to the safety and amenity of neighbourhoods throughout the municipality.
"Well constructed footpaths are not only safer, they encourage people to get out and walk, or in the case of younger children to ride their bikes, scooters or skateboards. Whether it's for exercise, for pleasure, or to get to and from school, the shops, or to visit a neighbour, good footpaths are important for people of all ages", Cr Perry said.
