Bass Coast Shire Council is pleased to announce that Inverloch’s shared-pathway project from Ayr Creek to Veronica Street (approximately 400 metres) is due for completion this week, with some final landscape planting to be undertaken around April 2018.

The 2.5 metre wide pathway now extends almost three kilometres along the foreshore of Inverloch. It is a ‘shared-use’ pathway, benefitting and accessible to all community members.

Bass Coast Shire Council Ward Councillor, Julian Brown, says the pathway is already being used by hundreds of people each week.

“The pathway is great. It is being used by people of all ages and abilities - from morning until night”, Cr Brown said.

The project includes a new car parking bay, picnic seats and landscaping.

Inverloch resident Sandy Norton, said that the pathway is great for the community and is already well used by her children and their friends.

“The children meet at our house every morning and ride along the path to school. We love it,” Sandy said.

The Foreshore Shared Path is part of Council’s 2017/18 Capital works program and cost $408,000. Council is committed to extending the pathway beyond Veronica Street in the future. Future works are subject to Council decision and the allocation of funds in future budgets.
