Rail Trail to extend west

MOUNT Gambier City Council will use funds allocated in the 2017/18 budget to progress the next stage of the Rail Trail development.

Council allocated $250,000 in the 2017/18 budget to extend the shared walking/cycling path to the west of White Avenue.

In addition, council has received $40,000 as part of the State Government Bicycle Funding Program.

The total budget of $290,000 will be used to construct linkages from the existing rail trail through to Hastings Cunningham Reserve and Shepherdson Road and to extend the path 1.65km in a westerly direction from White Avenue through to Jubilee Highway West.
