Council is designing a 750 metre pathway in western Castlemaine to improve pedestrian access to the centre of town.

Thursday 10 September 2020

Mount Alexander Shire Council will shortly commence the design process for a new 750 metre pathway along Reckleben, View and Forest streets to provide better pedestrian connectivity between western Castlemaine and the town centre.

The design of the new path will provide safer access for residents in the area, and link to the footpath along Ray and Bowden streets that Council completed earlier this year.

“We recognise the importance of providing safe pedestrian access in and around Castlemaine as the town’s population increases,” said Jess Howard, Council’s Director Infrastructure and Development.

“If you have ideas that could be considered when designing this project, concerns regarding the proposed alignment or construction materials, or knowledge of drainage or other issues that might affect the design, we encourage to you to get in touch and have a chat with our Engineering Team on 5471 1700,” said Ms Howard.

The path is proposed to start at the Gaffney Street and Chapmans Road intersection and extend along Reckleben Street to the intersection of View Street. It will then head south along View and Forest streets to the Bowden Street intersection.

Council intends to finalise the design early next year.
