Long Mile Road Upgrade
Status: Under Construction
The first stage of the forest project, which began late February, involves infrastructure upgrades at Long Mile Road. Local company, Campbell Infrastructure Ltd, has been contracted to complete this work which includes formalising footpaths and shared paths (to improve safety), formalising car and bus parking, upgrading stormwater management, kerbs and channels, and improving the connection to Scion.
The 3m wide shared path which has been started will extend down Long Mile Road, providing a safe and user-friendly pathway for pedestrians, runners, bike riders and other wheeled devices.
The next stage of the Long Mile Road upgrade will include progressing the shared path, formalising car parks around the Tree Archive dog walking park entrance, and beginning work to improve drainage. This will take place along the first 600m of Long Mile Road and is scheduled to start on Monday 29 April.
