The last remaining section of shared walking and bicycle pathway extending from Westgate Park to the foreshore at Sandridge Beach has been completed as part of the Webb Dock redevelopment.
It means a continuous shared path now runs from the Yarra River at Westgate Park under the West Gate Bridge and along Todd Road to join up with Perc White Reserve and the new observation platform at Sandridge Beach.
The redevelopment of Webb Dock has created more attractive and safer cycle options for recreational riders along the Todd Road precinct. There is now a fully landscaped shared pathway running along Todd Rd with drinking fountains, seating and earth mounds set amongst mature and low rise native plants.
Better connectivity for cyclists and pedestrians has remained integral to the Port’s commitment to improve buffering and to retain open spaces around the working port as part of the $1.6 billion redevelopment of Webb Dock. The buffers also provide for aesthetic screening and noise abatement from the port.
The pathways together with other improvements such as the community playground at Perc White Reserve and observation tower will remain a positive community legacy of the Webb Dock redevelopment.
