Expanding our pedestrian and cycle path links

Improving the Shire’s walkability and active transport links is one of a number of focuses highlighted in The Hills Shire Council’s Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement (LSPS).

The LSPS, which is now on exhibition, proposes to improve connectivity between local centres, the public transport network and communities, as well as completing gaps in the regional and local trail network.

“A network of pedestrian and cycle paths that link waterways, bushland and centres, is crucial to encouraging active and healthy lifestyles,” Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said.

Proposed local link improvements will include:

• Caddies Creek Trail;
• Smalls Creek Trail;
• Cattai Creek Trail; and
• Toongabbie Creek Cycleway.

The LSPS will be on exhibition until Friday 9 August 2019.
