The Carnarvon Community College shared path has been completed, giving students, pedestrians and riders a safer option to get to school and around town.

The new path connects the existing path at Carnarvon Community College on Gascoyne Road to Lewer Road, leading up to Robinson Street.

The project has been jointly funded through the Department of Transport’s WA Bicycle Network grants program.

A Shire of Carnarvon spokesperson said grant funding of about $130,000 helped design and construct 750m of new shared path that allows students to walk and ride safely to school.

“Preliminary design specification works began in 2022, with construction commencing in August 2023. The new shared path was completed in November 2023 and the total cost of the project came to $259,120 (ex GST),” the spokesperson said.
