terrific to see the start of the “missing link”, the piece of path missing
between Belgrave and Kallista. It’s an important part of the footpath network
as it means pedestrians can now travel back and forth on the same side of the
road without having to negotiate two crossings on the very busy Monbulk Rd.
while in the making, it has been a challenging project (as many are in the
Lyster Ward). The challenging topography, environmental considerations and
pedestrian safety and friendliness meant that a lot of detail went in to the design
and construction of this footpath.
The footings have been excavated in a way that protects the root systems of the
mountain ash trees that follow the footpath whilst the boardwalk construction
means there is far less impact on the environment and avoids tree removal.
forward to having a stroll myself and seeing more of these vital links in our
footpath network come to fruition.
