Tatura residents have recently welcomed a new 10km shared path, giving people the chance to visit the whole town safely and efficiently.
The stone path was first initiated last year by the Tatura Walks and Rides Committee in partnership with the Tatura Community Plan Committee, Greater Shepparton City Council, Tatura Lions Club and Tatura Rotary Club.
Tatura Walks and Rides Committee member Ross Musolino said the path was coming together nicely with Dhurringile Rd completed and focus to now be placed on the section where the road meets Northlinks.
Thanks to a generous donation from the Tat 200 event, bollards will be placed to indicate a safe crossing section.
A large focus is also being placed on the south end around Murton Rd and O’Reilly Rd.
The Tatura Community Plan Committee has also investigated funding for more path works, after receiving no funds in the 2018-19 Greater Shepparton City Council draft budget.
Long term, the group hopes to include exercise stations at Cussen Park and Lake Bartlett with extra funds hopefully secured through grant applications in the near future.
Tatura Walks and Rides Committee is undertaking a footpath audit of the whole town to ensure all paths are in good condition and to understand where ramps and smoother tilts may be needed.
‘‘These are important for everyone in the community,’’ Mr Musolino said.
