A new shared pathway will soon commence construction in the Southern Beaches to link two rapidly growing residential communities.
The Dodges Ferry – Carlton Loop will wind along Carlton River Road, down Carlton Beach Road, onto Park and Carlton Beach and then up Moomere Street.
Approximately 7 km in length, the shared pathway represents much needed infrastructure to connect local communities, recreation assets, coastal reserves and community services, as well as to improve recreation opportunities and facilitate social interaction.
Council secured $248,000 from the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program Phase 2 to help fund the development of the Loop.
Gravel paths will be used in sections where sealed footpaths do not already exist in order to preserve the rural beachside feel which is valued by the local community. The existing footpaths in the Loop will be renewed under Council’s footpath renewal program over the coming years.
Work on the Loop will commence in late July and should be completed by December 2021, weather and other factors dependent. Directional and information signage will also be installed along the track.
