More funding for cycle paths

Albury’s bicycle network is to expand even further, following State Government funding of $1.5M.

The money, announced in this week’s NSW State Budget, will fund a cycle path separate from the road along Table Top Road in the Kinross area at Thurgoona and a new three kilometre path on Wagga Road between Kaitlers Road and Ettamogah Rise Estate.

AlburyCity Mayor, Kevin Mack said it was a fantastic opportunity to expand Albury’s growing cycle path network into the city’s residential growth areas.

“This will be of huge benefit to people living in these areas, providing linkages and connectivity to the rest of the city,” Cr Mack said.

“We very much want our community to be a healthy one and initiatives such as this go a long way towards improving the health and well-being of our residents”.

Member for Albury Greg Aplin said the investment in active transport would better connect residential estates across the region.

“Projects like these will make a real difference to those who live and work in our community,” Mr Aplin said.
