Bega MP Andrew Constance confirmed the NSW Budget will prioritise finding for the construction of almost 500 metres for a “long overdue” shared path in Narooma.
“I am so excited to confirm this Government has secured the funds to build a shared cycle and pedestrian path along McMillan Road,” Mr Constance said.
Eurobodalla Shire Council will receive support funding from the NSW Government to design and build the path on the northern side of McMillan Road, providing improved access and safety to cyclists and pedestrians.
“This is just one of the many projects I am prioritising in Narooma and other parts of the Bega electorate to ensure our community gets it fair share.
“I thank the council for pursuing this great project, and know that if we work together we can ensure this project really the safety and active transport solutions our community needs.
“By targeting investment into improved cycling and walking facilities, the NSW Government is supporting more liveable and accessible communities.
“The 2017/18 Budget will see an unprecedented amount invested into active transport infrastructure across the state, making it easier for people who walk or ride to work to do so more safely,” Mr Constance said.
“We are listening to key groups in the community, like Bicycle NSW and Bicycle Networks to prioritise, plan and extend paths all over New South Wales.”
More information about the NSW Budget and the benefits to Narooma and the entire Bega electorate will be released later today.
