'Healthy transport': Warwick Farm to get new shared path

Holsworthy MP Melanie Gibbons said a new shared user path in Warwick Farm will encourage people to "adopt new forms" of healthy transport.

Ms Gibbons announced $204,000 for the project which will see the construction of a three-metre wide concrete shared user path located on the southern side of the Hume Highway between Remembrance Avenue and Goulburn Street in Warwick Farm.

"The NSW government is committed to continuing to fund new active transport projects that encourage people to walk and cycle as part of their everyday commute, and as a way of enjoying their local community," said Ms Gibbons, who noted the new pathway would benefit commuters, school children and people undertaking recreational activities.

"Our unprecedented funding of walking and cycling projects will see us invest nearly $600 million into walking and cycling infrastructure. This will bring the NSW government's total investment to around $1 billion, the largest commitment in the state's history.

"We want to improve links in our cities, regions, and suburbs to encourage people to adopt new forms of healthy transport, and get out and about, whether for leisure, fitness, or transport."
