CBSPA News: Cudmirrah Pathway News April 2011
1st April, 2011
Stage 2 of the shared pathway / track from Swanhaven to Ski Beach has been extended by another 300 metres and now finishes near the toilet block next to the boat ramp and parking area.
Work finished on the Friday the 8th April, 2011, just in time to be used over the School holidays and Easter Break.
This is a joint project of the Cudmirrah Berrara Swanhaven Progress Association and the Rotary Club of Sussex Inlet, without whose assistance with insurance and managing donated money for pavers, our pathway would not be where it is today.
In this latest section, we have placed more pavers at the point where the new section joins the old section.
Stage 2 ends near the toilet block next to the parking area/ boat ramp at ski beach Swan Lake.
We wish to thank all who participated in purchasing the pavers and all those who have put their own time into making this pathway become a reality. Special thanks to Peter Hawkins our Civil Engineer for his drawings and meetings with Council. Thank you for all those who worked on laying the concrete and working to get this finished on time.
The money for this stage has come from the Community. The table and chairs near the boat ramp were supplied by Council, (their only contribution to this section to date). We had our concreter, Berrara Beach Concreting, install this table and carry out work on the pathway. Originally this pathway - or track as it was called, was going to be constructed of gravel lined with boards, but we feel this is a more permanent path that will last for many years to come.
Stage 3 will be from the toilet to the 50/80klm sign near Cudmirrah Bridge. We are looking at methods of obtaining funding for this part of the project and wish to put in in appropriate areas of our existing pathway, passive exercise equipment along the route for all those fitness enthusiasts to use and enjoy.
Take a walk along this new path and enjoy the beautiful views of Swan Lake and see what a community can do when they really work hard.
