Moruya’s path to nowhere is going somewhere again, after the NSW Government announced funding today of $750,000 to help complete a missing link to South Head.
With federal, state and local government support, volunteers had over many years completed 4.4 kilometres, with 2.6 kilometres to go.
However, Tuross Head resident Danielle Brice and the Moruya South Head Cycle/Pathway Committee were devastated in July when the project was not made a priority in the Eurobodalla Shire council pathways strategy.
The missing link would be reconsidered in five years, “unless the project is fully funded through grants (outside the Active Transport Program) and/or community funding”, councillors decided at the time.
Mrs Brice lost her teenage son Chris on the road in 2008 when a vehicle struck him while he was walking.
At the pathway today, September 4, Bega MP Andrew Constance announced $750,000 funding to continue work and planning on the pathway.
It would be funded from the Priority Cycleways program.
“Mr Constance requested $750,000 be given consideration for the project following ongoing advocacy by Mrs Danielle Brice and the Moruya South Heads Cycle-Pathway Committee,” a spokeswoman for his office said.
