Path renewal Don Reserve – Nicholls St to James St

Project Name:                      Path renewal Don Reserve – Nicholls St to James St

Proposed Status:                Construction in 2020/21

Previous Status:                 No change (utilises part of the $300,000 allocated to ‘renewal projects’)

Proposed Budget:              $140,000 funded by grant from Drought Impact Program

Project objective:              Asset renewal

Project justification:        This section of path, nominally between the extensions of Nicholls Street and James Street and is to the west of the Don College oval.  It is immediately to the North of other sections proposed for renewal in 2020/21.  The path condition warrants renewal as the edges are breaking away, has uneven surfaces from tree root damage and other defects. It is also narrower than adjacent sections. This path has very high use by both pedestrians and cyclists

Project scope:                    Renew a 440m section of existing path, install root barrier as required.

Bluff Headland – Handrail replacement and extension

The southern part of the path has a handrail, but a risk assessment has recommended that the handrail be extended to reduce the risk of falls. In addition, the existing handrail is approaching end of life and should be renewed at the same time.
