The shared path, which will run between Pearl Park and the Great Southern Rail Trail, will aim to help keep people safe as they walk or cycle in the area. This location has been selected because it provides a direct connection between the Great Southern Rail Trail and the heart of Foster, as well as providing opportunities to connect with other important locations in the town.

Improvements identified during the Foster Shared Path consultation may be subject to further funding and approval by South Gippsland Council and the TAC

Improving safety

I also see how it would be beneficial for residents to be more active and enjoy a walk into town to support our local businesses." Mayor Davies said.
