The City of South Perth received 50 per cent of the funding from the Department of Transport for the path, which opened in mid-May.

It aims to make it easier for cyclists and students accessing Curtin University from the Canning Bridge train station.

Funding has also been provided to the city to assist in the building of the Davilak Street shared path at the end of Davilak Street, connecting to Canning Highway in Como.

This section of path will be constructed by the end of June and is a significant link that forms part of a cycle route from Canning Bridge train station to Curtin University.

‘It is important to encourage members of our community to use other means of transport and the development of cycle networks within the city is an option we can provide,’ said City of South Perth Mayor Sue Doherty.

‘Facilitating a viable alternative mode of transport is integral to the city’s goal in providing an integrated network of bicycle routes.’
