Footpath Construction

Footpath Projects

POINT NEPEAN ROAD FOOTPATH (CANTERBURY JETTY ROAD AND MINNIMURRA ROAD), RYE TO BLAIRGOWRIE

A footpath is being proposed along Point Nepean Road, between Canterbury Jetty Road and Minnimurra Road, and is currently in the preliminary planning and design phase. The aim is to provide sealed pedestrian connectivity between Rye and Blairgowrie. The path is proposed for construction in 2016/2017, with planning and design expected to be completed 2015/2016.

The Shire is also undertaking preliminary planning to allow for the missing link of the Bay Trail in this section for better advocacy for State Government funding when the opportunities arise. The proposed alignment has been positioned to minimise impact to vegetation and cultural heritage, with consideration for coastal management consent requirements.

TRUEMANS ROAD FOOTPATH (BOORAN PARADE TO ALMA STREET), TOOTGAROOK

As part of the Mornington Peninsula Shire Footpath Strategy, the Shire has developed plans for the construction of a footpath along Truemans Road, from Booran Parade to Alma Street, in Tootgarook.

The footpath will provide pedestrian connectivity to community and sports facilities, support mobility access, and deliver path improvements to the foreshore area. Pedestrian safety will also be enhanced by providing physical separation between path users and motorists travelling along Truemans Road.

The works will include the installation exposed aggregate pavement, pram crossings, drainage improvements, retaining wall works, with some tree removal. The alignment of the path has been designed to minimise the impact to existing vegetation and the surrounding area. See links below to download a copy of the tender plans for Truemans Road Footpath.

Footpath Construction Strategy

The Footpath Construction Strategy enables Council officers to evaluate and prioritise requests for the construction of footpaths across the Mornington Peninsula Shire within the Urban Growth Boundary. Council will be undertaking a review of the current strategy to identify any potential changes in scope of how footpaths and shared paths are assessed and prioritized for construction. Following the review and prioritization, the highest ranked footpaths and/or shared paths will then be considered for inclusion in the Capital Works Program.
