Broome is well-known for it's stunning coastline, famously enjoyed by tourists on camels – and now hopefully bikes!
Construction of Stage 1 of the Conti Foreshore shared path project is now complete, providing a high quality route along the famous foreshore.
The 422-metre-long, 3-metre-wide path from Town Beach to Guy Street kicks off plans for 1.3 kilometre safe shared path from Town Beach to Carnarvon Street, near the town centre.
The $616,070 project is joint funded from a $308,035 grant from the Western Australian Bicycle Network (WABN) program, matched by the Shire of Broome.
Stage 2 will be constructed in 2021-22, adding a further 900 metres of path along Conti Foreshore from Guy Street to Matso’s Brewery.
Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said that "once completed, the Conti Foreshore shared path project will provide locals and visitors with another option to travel from Roebuck Bay Caravan Park and Town Beach straight through to Matso’s Brewery."
Town Beach and Matso Brewery are iconic Broome locations and Roebuck Bay Caravan Park is a popular spot for locals and tourists, making this new path a handy connection for the community and it's many visitors.
