Foster shared path

South Gippsland Shire Council has obtained funding by the Transport Accident Commission's (TAC) local government grants program to investigate a possible shared path along Station Road, Foster. The 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. Council is seeking your feedback to help inform the development of concept designs that will improve the safety, security and amenity for pedestrians and cyclists, whilst also considering current and future demand of residents.

To have your say before Sunday 11 September 2022, please visit the council's 'Foster Shared Path' web page.
