Meadowlands Connectivity pathway provides missing link

Published: 17 Aug 2020

Mackay Regional Council together with the Queensland Government is excited to announce the addition of approximately 700 linear meters of shared pathway between the Meadowlands Amphitheatre and Alexandra Street.

Meadowlands Connectivity pathway is the last piece of the puzzle in completing a continuous path from Meadowlands Amphitheatre, along Alexandra Street onto Landsdowne Road and back through the Mackay Botanic Gardens on Lagoon Street.

Construction will commence this month and continue until mid-September, weather permitting.

The project has been funded by the Works for Queensland Program which supports regional councils to undertake job-creating maintenance and minor infrastructure projects.

The construction of the Meadowlands Connectivity Pathway will ensure that pedestrians and other users of the Botanic Gardens have a safe route around the site without the need to travel along a road at any point. The pathway will be a combination of concrete path, chip seal path and asphalt path.

The continued development of the Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens aims to ensure the gardens remains as one of the leading Regional Botanic Gardens in Australia, the premier open space facility in the region and major tourism drawcard.

During construction of the pathway, we urge road users and pedestrians to obey all signs and directions of traffic controllers.
