Pathway works to link Hunter Valley towns


Cessnock City Council has announced the start of works on the third and final stage of the Branxton to Greta Memorial Shared Pathway.

The project involves the construction of a 2.5-metre-wide, 3.3 kilometre-long shared pathway which will connect the Hunter Valley towns of Branxton and Greta.

The scope of work includes road works, pedestrian crossings, a new bus stop, earthworks, concrete pathways, parking improvements, line marking, signage, and landscaping.

Mayor, Jay Suvaal said he was looking forward to delivering the long-awaited shared pathway for the local community to enjoy.

“The Branxton to Greta Memorial Shared Pathway will provide a safe and convenient travel connection along the New England Highway for cyclists, pedestrians, and other non-motorised users,” Mayor Suvaal said.

“Overall, the project’s successful completion will have a positive and lasting impact on the community, promoting healthier lifestyles, environmental sustainability and economic benefits for our local government area.”

The Branxton to Greta Memorial Shared Pathway has been made possible with funding from the Commonwealth Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.

Works are scheduled to be completed in the last quarter of the year, subject to weather conditions.
