More than 33 kilometres of new pathways have been constructed across 125 locations in the Bundaberg Region over the past four years.

The infrastructure works are part of Bundaberg Regional Council's commitment to enhance livability and promote healthy and active lifestyles in the community.

Mayor Jack Dempsey said pathways had been constructed in areas including Bundaberg, Moore Park, Burnett Heads, Bargara, Innes Park, Coral Cove, Elliott Heads, Woodgate, Childers and Gin Gin.

“Council remains committed to delivering a high-quality, well-connected pathway network for all users,” he said.

“Every year we commit significant funds to the construction of new pathway infrastructure to help residents and visitors to the region to engage with the community around them.”

Mayor Dempsey said the three-year extensive pathway work equated to more than 33 kilometres, or a 62,700sq m area.

“To put that into perspective, those figures equal the length of more than 330 professional football fields of pathway in the region,” he said.

Mayor Dempsey said the infrastructure works would boost livability and promote healthy and active lifestyles for residents to enjoy.

“We already know the Bundaberg Region is a beautiful place to live, work and play,” he said.

“By providing this infrastructure we hope to make using our extensive pathway network more enjoyable and encourage people to get active and engage with the community around them.

“These paths support and encourage walking, running or cycling has the ability to inspire active living, engage people in social interaction and promote accessibility.”

Mayor Dempsey said pathway works would continue this year in areas including Kepnock Road, Thabeban Street, Walla Street, Faldt Street and more.
