footpath link getting closer

At the site of the new footpath - both
residents and tourists will be able to
navigate between Belgrave and
Kallista much more easily once the
path is constructed.
It's terrific to learn that after much planning that a tender is out for the construction of a footpath link to join the existing footpath in Belgrave on Monbulk Rd with the path that goes through Sherbrooke Forest to Kallista.  It's a project that I've been championing to ensure these two townships have a pedestrian link.

It's a challenging project, as they often are in the Lyster Ward, the topography, environmental concerns and pedestrian safety all come in to play.

It made for some challenging detailed designing to come up with a design that firstly makes sure pedestrians can stay on the same side of Monbulk Rd, that there's minimal environmental disturbance and it works across a range of challenging slopes.

I look forward to seeing it completed as part of the footpath plan to further link our townships.
