New footpath connects Edensor Road

Published Friday, 7th July 2017

Edensor Park residents and visitors will be able to get around their neighbourhood more easily with a new 850-metre footpath along Edensor Road from Bosnjak Oval to Allambie Road.

The path better connects residents to shopping centres, parks and other community facilities and makes it easier to get outdoors and stay fit.

Mayor of Fairfield City, Frank Carbone, encourages residents to make full use of the new footpath. 

“The new footpath on Edensor Road stretches for almost a kilometre, making life easier for residents to access various facilities across the community,” he said.

“Footpaths make it easier and safer for people to get around Fairfield City. They benefit everyone including young families with children and prams, people with a disability, older people, joggers and children walking to school.

“Fairfield City Council is more than doubling its investment in footpaths this financial year to more than $2.7 million. Almost $1.9 million will fund repairs and upgrades for existing footpaths and about $800,000 will fund new footpaths. Council will install 13 kilometres of new and renewed footpaths this financial year. 

“In recent months, Council invited residents to review and comment on Council’s plans for future road, kerb and gutter, and footpath upgrades. The response was very helpful and I’d like to thank residents for getting involved.

“Over the next four years, Council will invest $10.3 million in building new and renewing existing footpaths,” Mayor Carbone said.

In total, Council maintains about 943 kilometres of footpaths and shared cycleways across the City, equating to the road distance between Fairfield and Brisbane. 

If anyone sees a footpath or other matter which needs urgent repairs or maintenance, contact Council on 9725 0222.
