Path is an asset for town
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.
