On the right path

A DUAL-PURPOSE path in the Baigup wetlands has been given a facelift following successful lobbying by the Baigup Wetlands Interest Group.

The City of Bayswater matched a $19,000 federal government grant, which was spent on installing rumble strips, line-marking the pathway, putting up signage, and creating viewing areas for residents to absorb the scenery.

Federal member for Perth Tim Hammond and Bayswater mayor Barry McKenna said the funding resulted in walkers and cyclists being able to enjoy the area for years to come, and wetlands interest group coordinator Penny Lee congratulated them for filling in the applications so efficiently.

“The upgrade of the shared bicycle path has contributed to the Baigup Wetlands as a wonderful place for our whole community to enjoy,” Cr McKenna said.

“I would encourage local families to come out and visit Baigup Wetlands”, Mr Hammond said.
