More than 1750 square metres of footpath is currently being constructed along Gahans Road in Kalkie and, once complete, will link the area to Bargara Road and surrounding facilities.
Bundaberg Regional Council has begun work to the pathway project which was identified through the Active Transport Strategy.
Roads and Drainage portfolio spokesperson Cr Bill Trevor said the strategy involved connecting people to places of importance.
“Once complete this pathway will link up to existing footpath on Bargara Road, providing the community with even more opportunity to explore the area and connect with surrounding facilities,” he said.
“Bargara Road is a rapidly developing area which features public transport, food outlets, shops, childcare centres and schools.
“Giving residents an opportunity to access the area by foot, bike, pram, mobility devices or more is an important part of keeping our community connected.”
Work to the Gahans Road footpath project has begun and will continue on weekdays, during the hours of 6 am and 5 pm.
Weather permitting, work will be completed within twelve weeks.
Cr Trevor said during construction, sections of the roads would be subject to traffic management measures and would have the appropriate signage to guide motorists.
“Bundaberg Regional Council is aware of the inconvenience construction work causes and thanks residents and road users in advance for their patience and cooperation,” he said.
