Shared path to boost local connections in Lynbrook, Merinda Park and Cranbourne
20 Oct 2020
Communities from Cranbourne to Lyndhurst and Lynbrook will soon be better and more safely connected to shops, schools, services and train stations with a new 4.25-kilometre shared use path (SUP) to be constructed.
It will create a direct route between Lynbrook, Merinda Park and Cranbourne stations and connect with existing paths.
Thousands of local residents and hundreds of local businesses are set to benefit, with the new shared use path within 500 metres of 6000 homes and within one kilometre of 13,000 homes.
Works will begin towards the end of the year. It will initially be used as a safe haulage route for the Cranbourne Line Upgrade project before it is converted into a shared use path and opened to the community by 2023.
The project is via the Growth Area Infrastructure Contribution which builds critical infrastructure in the fast-growing cities of Cardinia, Casey, Hume, Melton, Mitchell, Whittlesea and Wyndham.
