The Department of State Growth is conducting a community consultation on the shared pathway from Margate to Huntingfield.
Kingborough Mayor, Paula Wriedt said the Department of State Growth were conducting the community consultation on the shared pathway through an interactive map and email.
“The community have told me on many occasions that they would like to see greater access to safer, connected pathways throughout Kingborough,” Cr Wriedt said.
“Though at the moment this proposed pathway is not funded and will come at a significant cost it is important that we develop a good understanding for what the community wants before investigating funding options.
“Improving alternative transport options and providing safer means for community members travelling to and from Margate is an important investment in our community’s future.
“Tracks and trails are in the top five most important things identified by the Kingborough community in our budget consultations earlier this year, and this path has previously been identified as a priority within Council’s Cycling Strategy.
“The consultation is designed to allow community members to provide feedback on the proposed design as well as the suggested route.
“I encourage everyone in the community to jump on board this consultation and either make their thoughts heard through the Social Pinpoint page which can be accessed at www.transport.tas.gov.au/margatetohuntingfield or by emailing MargateSharedPathway@stategrowth.tas.gov.au”
