Lyndhurst treading firm on new paths

Residents of Lyndhurst will soon no longer have to trudge along muddy footpaths thanks to a new grant from the NSW state government.

In particular the students from Lyndhurst Public School will be able to safely access the centre of the village.

Marching on: Students and residents from Lyndhurst joined Paul Toole for a walk along a recently finished section of footpath.

Earlier this year Bathurst MP Paul Toole announced he had secured $194,659 from the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund to kick-start the project.

On Wednesday he announced that an additional $219,954 from the NSW Active Transport Program would be made available to Blayney Shire Council to complete the works, bringing the NSW Government’s commitment to the initiative to $414,613.

“This funding will enable Blayney Shire Council to deliver the shared pathway for greater connectivity throughout Lyndhurst village for locals and visitors, Mr Toole said.

“Particularly from the highway to Lyndhurst Sports and Recreation Ground - now a popular campground which is attracting many visitors to the region.”
