Nationals Member for Tweed Geoff Provest today announced the NSW Government would fund 2 projects in Tweed as part of a plan to promote walking and cycling across the state.

Mr Provest said the funding was part of the NSW Government’s commitment to invest in active transport as a part of an integrated transport solution.

“Funding will be provided to Tweed Shire Council to improve walking and cycling connections in our community which provide a convenient way for people to get to work, school or just enjoy their weekend,” Mr Provest said.

Projects funded in Tweed include:

• Cycleway Salt Water Crescent to Casuarina Way, Kingscliff – $60,000
• Improvements to Tweed Heads Cycleway – $65,000

“These projects are great news for our local community and will encourage and enable more people to walk and ride, contributing to a more active, healthy community,” Mr Provest said.
