New Cycling Path Opens
Cyclists and pedestrians have a new shared path to use with completion of the $500,000 Henry Wrigley Drive path near the Darwin Airport.
The path will be a positive addition to the Darwin cycling and walking network and provide an active healthy transport option for those accessing facilities at the Marrara Sporting Complex and employment at Darwin airport.
The project aims to support cycling and walking as active and sustainable forms of transport with significant health, environment and community benefits
The new 2.5 metre wide path includes improvements to the pedestrian crossing at McMillan’s Road, separation kerbing, construction of a crossing point at Abala Road and installation of pathway signage.
A temporary ramp will be in place at the airport end of the path until the final section has been completed by Darwin International Airport. Shared path users should take care when entering and exiting the path at this location.
The NT Government is continuing to deliver a shared path network across the Territory for cyclists and pedestrians with $5 million invested over five years in new and upgraded paths including $1.5 million in Budget 2016 to deliver a 4km extension to the popular Howard Springs cycle path out to Coolalinga.
