Path is an as­set for town

The Tatura Guardian - - News - By Madeleine Cac­cian­iga

The Tatura Com­mu­nity Plan has iden­ti­fied a 10 km loop path for cy­cling and walk­ing around Tatura, giv­ing peo­ple the chance to visit the whole town safely and ef­fi­ciently.

The stone path was first ini­ti­ated last year by the Tatura Walks and Rides Com­mit­tee in part­ner­ship with the Tatura Com­mu­nity Plan Com­mit­tee, Greater Shep­par­ton City Coun­cil, Tatura Lions Club and Tatura Ro­tary Club.

City of Greater Shep­par­ton Mayor Kim O’Ke­effe said the Dhur­ringile Rd sec­tion was Stage One of this loop and was a pri­or­ity ac­tion of the Tatura Com­mu­nity Plan and was funded as part of the coun­cil’s 2017-18 cap­i­tal bud­get.

‘‘Coun­cil has been de­lighted to sup­port this project and the path is al­ready be­ing en­joyed by the res­i­dents,’’ Cr O’Ke­effe said.

She said the walk­ing path was fin­ished in July with $107 000 in fund­ing from coun­cil and $10 000 from Tatura Milk In­dus­tries through the Tat 200 event for the cross­ing sig­nage.

‘‘The com­pleted path will de­liver great ben­e­fits for the com­mu­nity, such as pro­vid­ing a safe path of travel for res­i­dents of all ages from Dhur­ringile Rd, North­links and John­stone Rd to walk, run, cy­cle, skate and scoot to and from their home into and around Tatura,’’ Cr O’Ke­effe said.

The path will also pro­vide a con­nec­tion to other ad­join­ing paths for events, such as the walk/run as part of the Tatura 200 on Satur­day, Novem­ber 17.
