Sunshine Coast Council making alternative transport an option
  • Monday 23 May 2011

At a special budget meeting recently Sunshine Coast Council endorsed a 10-year $59 million pathways and pedestrian facility capital works program focussed on the construction of new and upgraded pathways and pedestrian facilities.

In the 2011/12 financial year council intends to spend in excess of $6.2 million on pathways, pedestrian facilities, and construction of key local pathway linkages throughout the region.

Improved kerb ramps and road crossing facilities will provide pedestrians, cyclists and other non-motorised users with safe and sustainable alternative transport options.

Council is committed to providing safe, comfortable and accessible infrastructure to encourage active modes of transport such as walking and cycling, in favour of private vehicle use.
