GUYRA’S new shared $60,000 pathway is closer to the finish line, with the construction works well underway on Sole Street.

 

The 348-metre pathway extension was funded by $29,500 from the NSW Government’s Walking and Cycling program, with that figure matched by Armidale Regional Council.

 

“This pathway will extend Guyra’s shared pathway network and make it easier for everyone to get around either on foot or on a bike,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“This path meets up with the existing cycleway at Abercrombie Street, which was funded in a previous round of the same government program.

 

“The pathways are also wide enough to accommodate mobility scooters with ease and make access to the MPS and GP clinic easier for residents who use their ‘gopher’ rather than a car.

 

“With Kolora Aged Care Facility now officially open and residents in the process of transitioning into the new $8 million dollar facility, it’s important to have a pathway that connects the town to this facility,” he said.

 

The 2.5-metre wide pathway is being constructed along Sole Street, opposite the Hospital. It will be the first time the Kolora Aged Care facility and the Hospital have been connected by pathways suited for mobility scooters.

 

“Once completed Guyra residents will have a quiet, safe and level pathway to travel on that adds to the close-knit feel of the community,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“This 600 metre stretch completes this particularly pathway loop.

 

“In the future I hope to see the network extended further to include other streets and localities in Guyra.”
