Footpath installation has commenced along Greathead Road in Kepnock with 250 metres of concrete poured to link the community to surrounding facilities.
The project is part of the planned pathway network in Bundaberg Region Council’s Active Transport Strategy.
Roads and Drainage portfolio spokesperson Cr Bill Trevor said the extra concrete would connect exiting footpath in the area and would serve as the missing link for walkers and bikers.
“This footpath will provide connectivity for Belle Eden and Kepnock Residents through to Aldi and the new shopping centre currently under construction,” he said.
“It will follow on from the pathway works completed in Kepnock Road last financial year.
“Once the missing link is completed residents of Belle Eden and Kepnock will also be able to travel on a concrete pathway all the way to the CBD.”
Cr Trevor said the pathway would also run along significant natural areas in the Kepnock suburb.
“This link will connect people across to Belle Eden where they can enjoy our recently completed naturalisation project,” he said.
“The project transformed a barren and ecologically unhealthy drain into a thriving natural waterway in an innovative approach to stormwater catchment and treatment.
“It also traverses by Baldwin Swamp where walkers, runners and bike riders will get to experience some of the wonderful natural areas managed and maintained by Council.”
