Project summary

Mount Alexander Shire Council is focused on improving safety, accessibility and encouraging walking throughout the shire through the continued improvement of its footpath network.

As part of this focus, Mount Alexander Shire Council has completed the design of pedestrian crossing points on Walker Street, Castlemaine, as well as a new sealed footpath, on southern side of Walker Street. The footpath will connect the pedestrian crossing at the railway line to the start of the existing sealed path at the bridge crossing at Barkers Creek.

These design works were funded by the 2019 TAC Local Government Grant Program.

Project aim

The aims of this project included:
• the design of pedestrian crossing points linking two of Castlemaine’s popular tourist attractions including The Mill precinct and the Castlemaine Botanical Gardens, and providing improved access to Castlemaine Pool, Big4 Castlemaine Gardens Holiday Park and Castlemaine Hospital and;
• to improve accessibility through the design of a sealed path between the proposed pedestrian crossing points and the railway crossing on the southern side of Walker Street.
