Paths renewed in Cowes and Cape Woolamai


A number of path renewal projects are underway in Cape Woolamai and Cowes as part of Bass Coast Shire Council’s Open Space Pathway Renewal Program.

Almost 300 metres of pathways across three locations are being renewed or replaced to the approximate value of $54,100. The works are funded by Bass Coast Council and will be undertaken by a local contractor.

Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, explained the value these small but appreciated projects add to the community.  

“These pathways are used by residents and visitors alike on a daily basis, whether it is as a daily commute or a leisurely walk,” Cr Rothfield said.

“The Open Space Pathway Renewal Program is designed to provide renewal or replacement works so that the community can continue to enjoy the pleasures and purpose of these pathways, in a safe and comfortable environment.”

The three pathway renewals include:

  • The crushed rock track within Sunnyside Park, Cape Woolamai is being improved to become a three metre wide path with a timber edge border.
  • The asphalt path in Cape Woolamai along Phillip Island Road is being replaced with a 2.5 metre wide fibre reinforced concrete path.
  • In Cowes, the concrete path along Robert Drive is being replaced with a 1.5 metre wide fibre reinforced concrete path.
