Tarneit residents will now be able to get around a little easier thanks to 2.5km of new shared paths. The newly completed pathways will make it easier for residents to get to Tarneit train station and other key spots without driving.
The project, completed as part of the Wyndham Active Transport Strategy, included several important upgrades along the walking and cycling networks along the Melbourne Water pipe track reserve. This included a new shared path link through Goddard Street Reserve, new section of path on Thwaites Road and improved road crossings at Toucan Road, Thwaites Road, Tableland Road, Penrose Promenade, Brinbrook Street, Crossway Avenue and Wilandra Drive.
The improvements will make it easier for residents to get to Tarneit train station, the Tarneit Community Centre, Penrose Community Centre as well as nearby shops and schools without the need to drive.
The community will now have many more cycling and walking paths to enjoy. It’s also hoped the improvements will help take cars off our roads and give the growing Tarneit community more travel options.
