New pathway to connect City Centre to Mackay Harbour

From Monday (January 6) it’s full steam ahead on construction work for the shared bike and pedestrian pathway that will link Mackay Harbour to the Mackay City Centre.

The pathway will include four crossings and is expected to be finished by early May 2020, weather permitting.

The pathway will provide a continuous link from the Mackay Harbour into the City Centre and will connect to the existing Bluewater Trail.

The 2.6 kilometres of shared path and boardwalk starts at Vines Creek Bridge on Harbour Road and continues along to Ron Searle Drive.

Reduced speeds and traffic management will be in place during the works.

Council asks that the community follow signs and directions from traffic controllers to ensure these works are delivered safely and efficiently.

This project is majority funded by the Department of Transport and Main Roads, with contributions from Mackay Regional Council.
