City to build footpath after safety concerns

The request, signed by 20 of the suburb�s Horizons Estate residents, is for a path between San Teodora Avenue and Pinjar Road.

It said a path would improve safety for pedestrians and those riding bicycles, scooters and skateboards, as well as motor vehicles.

�There is no walkway access to the new petrol station and eventually restaurant (and) new shopping centre,� the petition said.

�We are in a young growing area and young families are using this access to the petrol station and eventually shopping centre with no safe access except the median strip or the road.�

A report to council said the unbudgeted works were expected to cost about $40,000.

Assets director Harminder Singh said the City would work to have the project finished by December.
