Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith recently announced that pedestrians and cyclists in Penrith will benefit from an extra $2.6 million in funding for walkways and shared paths in the state budget.

The extra funds will build projects such as:

  • A priority cycleway along Jane St, Penrith including a 530m off road shared user path
     
  • A priority cycleway along Coombes Drive, Penrith including a 1km off road shared pathway

Stuart Ayres said the investment would make it easier than ever to get around.

“Projects like these will make a real difference to those who live and work in our community,” Stuart Ayres said.

Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said the funding was in addition to a massive $80 million investment in the Cycling Infrastructure Fund.

“The NSW Government is investing an unprecedented amount on active transport infrastructure, making it easier for people who walk or ride to work to do so more safely,” Mr Constance said.

“We are listening to key groups in the community, like Bicycle NSW and Bicycle Networks to prioritise, plan and extend paths all over New South Wales.”
