Fund­ing for campground

Wanneroo Weekender - - News -

UP­GRADES to the campground at Yanchep Na­tional Park will re­ceive $261,500 in Fed­eral Govern­ment fund­ing to boost tourism in the re­gion.

The fund­ing is a part­ner­ship be­tween the Fed­eral and State gov­ern­ments as part of the na­tional $43 mil­lion Tourism De­mand Driver In­fra­struc­ture pro­gram.

A trial campground was es­tab­lished there in 2016, pro­vid­ing 20 sites, and the campground be­came per­ma­nent af­ter the one-year trial.

The Fed­eral fund­ing, in con­junc­tion with State fund­ing, will go to­wards con­struc­tion of an ablu­tions block, road ac­cess, park­ing ar­eas, paths, sig­nage, a bar­be­cue shel­ter and camp­site in­fra­struc­ture.

IT’S time for the coastal path be­tween Burns Beach and Min­darie Ma­rina to be com­pleted.

You may have seen in re­cent news that there was a cy­clist killed on Marmion Av­enue be­tween those two points.

This death could have been avoided. Let’s try keep more peo­ple safe by mo­ti­vat­ing the State Govern­ment to act now.

I was promised by the coun­cils and MPs for that area that work would start two years ago. I also be­lieve that funds were made avail­able then, so cost should not be an is­sue.

The Govern­ment pro­motes healthy liv­ing and cy­cling is a huge part of that, so please make it safer for me and my grand­kids to cy­cle the coastal path from Min­darie to Burns Beach.

Please make this project ur­gent to pre­vent any more deaths on our roads. ROBERT SLABAK, Min­darie
