We've been constructing a shared use path for pedestrians and cyclists between the lake in West Lakes and the River Torrens outfall channel.
The project aligns paths through open space areas next to the Grange Lakes drainage channel, along the creek next to Kirkcaldy Reserve, through linear reserves near Cudmore Terrace and next to the Henley & Grange Memorial Oval before winding its way through local streets to the River Torrens.
The shared paths are 2.5 metres wide. This makes them a safe, accessible, all-weather off-road route for cyclists, school children, parents with prams and the mobility impaired.
We've upgraded the paths with public lighting, safety barrier fencing and new crossings over streets.
Stage 1 and 2
Between Trimmer Parade and Grange Railway line, were completed in 2014/15.
Concept Plan - Stages 1 and 2
Between Grange Railway Line and Jetty Street, were completed in 2015/16.
Concept Plan - Stage 3
Consultation on a new 2.5 metre wide reinforced concrete path, fencing and public lighting in the section alongside Napier Drive has been completed and detailed design is in progress, with construction planned in early 2020.
Concept Plan - Stage 4
Design of a 2.5 metre wide reinforced concrete path, boardwalks and public lighting in the seciton between Napier Drive and Jetty Street (alongside The Grange - the former home of Captain Charles Sturt) is in progress in 2019/20.
Construction works through Kirkcaldy Park (between Beach Street and Grange Road) were completed in 2016/17. These works involved replacement of the existing 1.2 metre wide path with a 2.5 metre wide reinforced concrete path, construction of new fencing and installation of new LED public lighting.
Concept Plan - Stage 5
Construction works through Colin Sellars Reserve (between Grange Road and Marlborough Street) were completed in 2017/18. These works involved construction of a new 2.5 metre wide reinforced concrete path and installation of new LED public lighting and planting of new trees.
Concept Plan - Stage 6
Stages 7 -12 are yet to be determined and is subject to future budget allocation.
