NSW GOVERNMENT FUNDS TWEED WALKING AND CYCLING PROJECTS

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest today announced funding of $685,000 to rebuild The Anchorage boardwalk in Tweed Heads.

“This project will make a real difference to those who live, work and holiday in our community,” Mr Provest said.

“It not only provides a pathway for cycling, running and walking but also presents an opportunity to visit picturesque areas of river bank in comfort and safety.

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 in their communities and 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.”

Mr Provest said he was hopeful that funding for additional cycle ways and walkway projects in the Tweed Electorate would also be approved in the near future.
