The new footpath running from the southern side of Silkwood, along Silkwood-Japoon Road, has been completed and is now open for residents’ use.
Division Two Councillor, Teresa Millwood, said Cassowary Coast Regional Council is focused on improving all of our towns’ infrastructure and have a high priority for the up-keep and improvement of footpaths, which link our residents to facilities, such as schools, medical facilities, and shopping areas.
“This footpath is long awaited and will provide the Silkwood community safer access to the school and other local businesses and facilities.”
“Funded as part of Works for Queensland 2019/21 and valued at approximately $300,000, the project involved removing the existing bitumen path and concrete barrier kerb and channel, and replacing them with a new two-metre-wide concrete path, new kerb inlet pits, and vehicle access crossovers.”
“It also included a new ramp for pram, wheelchair, and bike access near the current zebra crossing,” said Cr. Millwood.
The project was constructed in accordance with the Far North Queensland Regional Organisation of Councils Development Manual and completed by local contractors, QDAC Services Pty Ltd.
QDAC and the Cassowary Coast Regional Council would like to thank the Silkwood Community for their patience whilst the project was underway.
