Stage 2 works along O’Reilly Road connect to the previously constructed path adjacent to Tatura Racecourse and Recreation Reserve.
Council received a tremendous response from the local residents in the recent community consultation for the Final Stage of the Tatura 10km Walking / Cycling Loop. Council has given consideration to all of the comments received in finalising the shared path design. The design has also been endorsed by the Walks and Rides Committee as part of Council’s consultation process.
The Final Stage of the 2.5m wide x 1.4km long stone dust path will be located entirely on the south side of O’Reilly Road to create a safe path alignment for cyclists and pedestrians.
