Mindarie-Burns Beach Dual Use Path Announced

The Honourable Rita Saffioti, Minister for Transport, Planning and Lands in the Western Australian State Government has released a media statement [December 14, 2017) announcing the construction of a 4.9 kilometre dual-use path through the Tamala Conservation Park connecting the coastal settlements of Mindarie with Burns Beach.

According to the Minister the path will cost in the vicinity of $2 million dollars and will be the “final link” in a 58 kilometre coastal route from Quinns Rock “almost all the way to Fremantle.”  The chosen alignment for the dual use pathway will ensure the protection of the foredune system and minimal vegetation disturbance while optimising coastal views and appropriate path levels to suit all users.

Whilst it is great to see the path being extended, the continued failure to address the connectivity to Fremantle is frustrating. We need proper commuter/recreational bicycle rider connection link across Tydeman Road and the Swan River but alas this continues to get ignored both by the current government and previous ones.
