Bike path plan takes shape

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - NEWS -

THE Town of Vic­to­ria Park has re­ceived a $90,000 grant from the Depart­ment of Trans­port to build an off-road shared path on Rut­land Av­enue be­tween Oats Street and Welsh­pool Road in Carlisle.

The grant was re­ceived as part of the 2017-2018 WA Bi­cy­cle Net­work (WABN) Grants Pro­gram, which fa­cil­i­tates the pro­vi­sion of a safe and sus­tain­able cy­cling net­work across WA.

Con­struc­tion of this sec­tion of the Rut­land Av­enue shared path will be com­pleted by the end of April 2018 and will help fill part of the miss­ing link of the Perth to Ar­madale rail­way line path.

Vic­to­ria Park chief ex­ec­u­tive An­thony Vuleta said the com­mu­nity wanted to see cy­cling in­fra­struc­ture in the Town grow and im­prove.

“This grant en­ables the Town to deliver a new piece of the Rut­land Av­enue shared path, bring­ing us closer to hav­ing a con­tin­u­ous path through the area,” he said.

“We want the Town to be a place with sus­tain­able, safe and con­ve­nient trans­port op­tions.”

The Town is also work­ing with the City of South Perth to deliver a com­pre­hen­sive bike plan.
