About the project

Council identified the need to provide a shared path facility in this location to improve safety and accessibility for local residents, pedestrians and cyclists travelling through this area.

The new 2.5 metre-wide shared path extends along the northern side of Beams Road between The Big Easy Golf and Leisure Club and the Koobara Aboriginal and Islander Kindergarten. The new path also provides a connection to the existing Cabbage Tree Creek Bikeway on the northern side of Beams Road.

The project involved:

  • extending the existing culvert structure that traverses Cabbage Tree Creek
  • construct a new 2.5 metre-wide shared path on the northern side of Beams Road, including a new bicycle friendly handrail at the culvert
  • reconstructing the driveway entrance to the Koobara Aboriginal and Islander Kindergarten, between the road and the property boundary
  • reinstatement of the northern lane of Beams Road along the new shared path
  • turfing along the shared path, as required. 

Council would like to thank local residents, business and road users for their patience and understanding while these important works were undertaken.

Benefits

The path improves access and safety for local residents and pedestrians and cyclists who travel through this area.
