Sims Road pathway project complete

Sims Road Pathway
Council Roads and Infrastructure urban portfolio spokesperson Cr Larine Statham-Blair said the Sims Road pathway project created improvements for the whole community and provided public transport users with safer boarding and disembarking.

The community is now stepping out on a new significant footpath that’s transforming the area as the Sims Road pathway project is now complete.

Designed with safety and accessibility in mind, the Bundaberg Regional Council project has benefits for both pedestrians and cyclists.

Council Roads and Infrastructure urban portfolio spokesperson Cr Larine Statham-Blair said the substantial project was 800 metres long and provided improvements for the public, including tactile ground surface indicators to assist visually impaired community members.

“Community members will now be able to utilise the pathway network with better and safer access,” Cr Statham-Blair said.

“It has created improvements and provided public transport users with safer boarding and disembarking from buses as it links the pathway to the bus stops in Hunter Street.

“The Sims Road pathway project now connects to the Indigenous Wellbeing Centre and provides school-aged children with a safer route to walk or bike to Walkervale State School, giving parents peace of mind.

“The new pathway also offers a safer option for visually impaired individuals or persons with disabilities who may transit through the area.”

The new pathway on Sims Road stretches 800 metres.

Cr Statham-Blair said the project was part of Council’s commitment to improving local infrastructure.

“The Sims Road pathway project has improved vehicle access for residents to their homes, as some properties had no concrete access at all, while others were in need of replacement,” she said.

“Projects like this not only improve safety but also encourage residents to get out and enjoy our beautiful area.

“It’s wonderful to see so many people already making use of the new footpath.

“So, whether you're taking a morning jog, an afternoon stroll, or cycling to work or school, the completion of the Sims Road pathway project will make it easier and safer for the community.”
