First stage of new Seaford shared use path opens
21 Nov 2019
The first stage of Seaford’s new shared use path is open between Seaford Road and Kananook Station, delivered by the Level Crossing Removal Project as part of the $10 million revitalisation of the area.
The 1.5-kilometre path from Seaford Road to Kananook Station is the first part of more than six kilometres of new shared use path being built in Seaford, improving links to train stations, existing walking trails and new community open space at RF Miles Reserve.
As level crossing removal works progress along the Frankston line, more than 11 kilometres of continuous shared use path will connect Edithvale to Frankston.
On Saturday 9 November, Seaford locals braved chilly weather to bring their bikes, scooters, prams and paws to celebrate the opening of the path, alongside the completion of new artwork on the Seaford Road rail bridge.
A Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony by Bunurong Land Council started proceedings, with local artist Adam Magennis telling the group about the designs which connect the Seaford community to Country.
Nepean School, who created colourful tiles inspired by patterns from Bunurong Country, were also acknowledged for their creativity, bringing even more colour to the Seaford Road pedestrian underpass.
With summer just around the corner, the team has almost finished planting all of the 100,000 mostly native and indigenous trees and shrubs to transform the area. Check out what species will be planted in our trees and landscaping fact sheet.
The new community open space and all-abilities playground at RF Miles is taking shape and on track for locals to enjoy over summer.
