Ex­pand­ing our pedes­trian and cy­cle path links

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Community News -

Im­prov­ing the Shire’s walk­a­bil­ity and ac­tive trans­port links is one of a num­ber of fo­cuses high­lighted in The Hills Shire Coun­cil’s Draft Lo­cal Strate­gic Plan­ning State­ment (LSPS).

The LSPS, which is now on ex­hi­bi­tion, pro­poses to im­prove con­nec­tiv­ity be­tween lo­cal cen­tres, the pub­lic trans­port net­work and com­mu­ni­ties, as well as com­plet­ing gaps in the re­gional and lo­cal trail net­work.

“A net­work of pedes­trian and cy­cle paths that link wa­ter­ways, bush­land and cen­tres, is cru­cial to en­cour­ag­ing ac­tive and healthy life­styles,” Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said.

Pro­posed lo­cal link im­prove­ments will in­clude: • Cad­dies Creek Trail;

• Smalls Creek Trail;

• Cat­tai Creek Trail; and

• Toongab­bie Creek Cy­cle­way.

The LSPS will be on ex­hi­bi­tion un­til Fri­day 9 Au­gust 2019.
