Originally funded in Maroondah Council's 2015/16 Budget, we are pleased to note that the reconstruction of the trail between Canterbury Rd Heathmont to HE Parker Reserve is now complete.
The former asphalt path was narrow, with a rough surface cracked and uprooted. Many cyclists felt unsafe on the trail that they instead took the adjacent road.
We are pleased to see that the new path is a smooth, 3.0m wide concrete surface with clear linemarking and signposting, with excellent sight lines so you can see around corners.
Maroondah BUG looks forward to more of the trails in Maroondah being upgraded to a similar standard.
