The Shire of Carnarvon is pleased to announce the completion of the new shared path that connects the existing path at Carnarvon Community College on Gascoyne Road, to Lewer Road leading up to Robinson Street.

The Carnarvon Community College Shared Path has been jointly funded through the Department of Transport’s WA Bicycle Network grants program. Grant funding of $128,750 (ex GST) helped to design and construct 750 metres of new shared path that allows students to walk and ride safely to school.

Preliminary design specification works began in 2022, with construction commencing in August 2023. The new shared path was completed in November 2023 and the total cost of the project came to $259,120 (ex GST).

Completion of the new shared path creates a safer option to walk, wheel and ride more freely between locations around Carnarvon. This key project outcome aligns itself with the Strategic Community Plan where our infrastructure, housing, and amenities are high quality and accessible.
