Improving our shared path network

Shared paths provide wider and safer walking and cycling routes for our community including greater accessibility for prams, wheelchairs and mobility scooters.

We're sought community feedback on a proposal to build a new shared path at Trafalgar Park, Newport.

The new shared path will help improve safety and connectivity to Newport Public School and the existing shared path along Gladstone Street, Newport.

Funding for this project has been made available through the Transport for NSW Active Transport 2020/21 grant funding program.

What we proposed

The proposed alignment follows the natural desire lines through Trafalgar Park, providing a direct connection between the existing pedestrian crossings to Newport Public School and the shared path on Gladstone Street.

To help ensure the path blends into the surrounding reserve, we're proposing to use natural coloured concrete.

As part of these works, we are also improving the pedestrian crossing through the carpark that links to the existing playground in Trafalgar Park.
