Casey wins $1.2m funding for Bayview Park project

City of Casey Council has welcomed $1.2 million in funding from the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) Program to undertake works at the popular 1001 steps in Narre Warren North.

The funding will be used to construct an accessible access path from the carpark area of the 1001 steps through to the top main viewing point. The new raised path will be fully accessible to users of all ages and physical abilities, with handrails where required and rest points with seating at regular intervals.

City of Casey Chair of Administrators, Noelene Duff PSM thanked the Australian Government for its investment in one of the City of Casey’s most popular attractions, Bayview Park.

“The City of Casey is committed to providing parks that are inclusive for all. The addition of this accessible path will allow people of all abilities to access and enjoy this outstanding attraction, which features sweeping views across Casey, Western Port and Port Phillip Bay,” Ms Duff said.

She said that following some slight delays due to current demands being faced across the infrastructure sector, construction of the first stage of the accessible path commenced last week, with stage two scheduled to begin early next year.
