New path ahead for Moore Street residents

AFTER  years of  complaints by residents about having to walk on soggy  grass and dodge traffic along Warrnambool’s busy Moore Street, work has started on a designated footpath.

The 950-metre-long crushed granite route will be combined with a swale drain and vegetation to help filter water before it enters Russells Creek.

It is part of  a $338,000 project to extend shared pathways through north-east Warrnambool. 

A  400m section of concrete path along Dales Road and a 300m granitic path through Brierly Reserve will also be built. 

City council infrastructure director Peter Robertson said the 2.5-metre wide paths would carry pedestrians and cyclists.

“They will provide a link between north-east Warrnambool and the city centre via Cramer Street, which has an established bicycle lane,” he said.

“The Victorian government has put $200,000 towards this project while the council is contributing $138,000. Work will be completed by the end of April”.
