“I am calling on our community to help the City of Canada Bay shape our new Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan,” City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said.

Walking and travelling on our footpaths is a fundamental and direct means of access to key services for many people in the community.

“It is important that the pedestrian network in the City of Canada Bay meets current and future needs for pedestrians of all ages and mobility, including older people, people who are mobility impaired, school children, and recreational users.”

“Your feedback will help inform the plan, which will set out a path to make it easier to get around our area on foot.”

The Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan outlines an infrastructure strategy to improve pedestrian accessibility, connectivity, and safety within the local area.

“It’s important for everyone to be able to easily get around our area and I’m pleased the City of Canada Bay is working on a plan to improve access for all, particularly the disabled, elderly and less mobile,” local resident and Access and Inclusion Committee member Coral Arnold said.

“We would like to hear from you about your experience of pedestrian access and mobility in the City of Canada Bay and how this can be improved to better meet the needs of the community,” Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said.

Feedback on the plan is open until 22 February:
