Fremantle’s newest shared use path
February 17, 2016 9 Comments
Fremantle’s newest shared use path opened today linking Tydeman Rd and Queen Vic Street in North Fremantle. Previously you had to ride or walk on a narrow bit of path around the entrance to the Swan Hotel, get though a random mix of cars turning, pub patrons and bikes – and it was less than ideal.
A huge thanks for all those involved in getting this project on the ground. Thanks to Fremantle Ports and the Public Transport Authority for working with the City of Fremantle to enable what was previously Ports land to be used for this community purpose.
Not only is this a great new pedestrian and cycle facility but the City of Fremantle construction team have also done a great job embedding sustainability elements within the project. The path has been constructed with recycled asphalt and has new solar lighting installed along the length.
Special thanks to Concerned Resident Robert Fittock for giving up his time for the photo shoot.
