Shared path network fully finished
Over the weekend, the remaining part of the project’s shared path network was opened for use by cyclists and pedestrians.
As part of the Gateway WA project, approximately 21 kilometres of shared path and local connections have been installed adjacent to the new road alignment along Tonkin and Leach Highways, the extension of Leach Highway into Perth Airport (Airport Drive) and Roe Highway.
The first portion of the Gateway WA shared path network was opened last September in the vicinity of the airport along Tonkin Highway and Leach Highway.
The entire network includes seven cyclist/pedestrian underpasses and one bridge that provide connectivity for the network, with lighting installed along the way to increase visibility for users.
