Kyabram’s walking and cycling trail is a step closer with works for stages two to five progressing.

A Kyabram Walking and Cycling Strategy was developed after consultation with the community in 2004, and was aimed at developing walking and cycling infrastructure linking key areas in Kyabram.

Campaspe Shire Council strategy executive manager Anne Howard said while preliminary works were completed some years ago along Breen Ave and South Boundary Rd, further implementation was dependent upon securing funding partners.

The implementation of the strategy was listed as a high priority through the Kyabram Community Plan — a document developed by the community detailing key priority projects for Kyabram and district.

This community support was recognised by the Victorian Government, who committed $300000 from the Regional Growth Fund in September last year. The total project budget is about $470000 with council providing the balance of funds.

Stages two to five works include:

Lake Rd — off-road path opposite Fauna Park lakes, and on-road cycle lanes north of Fauna Park

South Boundary Rd — completing off-road cycling link between Cooma Rd and Lake Rd

Breen Ave — upgrade to the existing cycle path.

Ms Howard said the components of the project are shown as elements B to F on the concept plan.

Detailed design will now commence with works expected to start mid-2013.
