Work starts on shared path extension

4 Jun 2008

Work has commenced on the construction of shared paths that will link the future civic hub of Doncaster Hill to Westfield Doncaster.

Footpaths along Council Street and Goodson Street are being replaced by widened, shared pedestrian and cycling paths. The project is being jointly funded by Council and the Department of Infrastructure, which contributed $173,195 through its Local Area Access Program.

Work includes the extension of the award-winning existing boulevard treatment on the Doncaster Road frontage of Doncaster Primary school, along the eastern side of Council Street to Goodson Street, and along the southern side of Goodson Street to Westfield.

The project also involves the development and placement of signage at key locations to identify the pedestrian and cycling network and major destination links.
