Wentworth Shire Council has informed the community that the previously announced upgrade of the Dareton to Namatjira Sharedway Footpath is set to commence in March 2024.

The initiative, joint funded by Council and Transport for NSW (NSW Government) through Get NSW Active 2023/24, is a significant step in enhancing regional infrastructure and community wellbeing.
The project features the construction of a new 2.5 metre wide asphalt path from the intersection of Hawdon Street and Tapio Street to Namatjira Avenue, designed to accommodate pedestrians and cyclists.

The existing concrete path between Pump Station Road and Tallawalla Road will also be widened to better manage increasing foot traffic.
Key safety enhancements include the installation of solar lighting along the sharedway, providing illumination during all hours and improving visibility.

Additionally, the placement of bench seating along the path will offer rest points for users, thereby enhancing the overall amenity of the sharedway.
The upgrade is expected to significantly improve the functionality and safety of the sharedway.
