Footpaths 

The footpath network is constructed throughout the municipality to provide appropriate pedestrian linkages to properties and public and private facilities. The Footpath Policy outlines our position to have a minimum of one footpath on every street in Darwin.

We continue to implement an ongoing program to provide a connected path network throughout Darwin.

Current Projects

Please see below lists for current road safety improvement projects happening around Darwin.

Calytrix Road, Karama

Footpath works along Calytrix Road, Karama have commenced in collaboration with road works being undertaken to ease traffic congestion at the entrance to Holy Family Catholic Primary School.

Works are forecasted to be completed by end of May 2020.

 

Dick Ward Drive, Sunset Drive, and Hazell Court Intersection

To improve shared path connectivity along Dickward Drive, City of Darwin will be upgrading the footpath at the Dickward Drive/Sunset Drive/Hazell Court intersection in Coconut Grove (See overleaf a plan indicating the area of work).

Works are scheduled to commence within the next three weeks, weather permitting.

As part of the project there will be a requirement to remove a number of trees within the verge. Some of these trees may be in front your property.

Council will be using machinery that may cause a noise disturbance for the duration of the works. Please follow any traffic instructions where necessary.

Shared Paths

We maintain and construct shared paths throughout the municipality to provide an accessible and connected pedestrian and cycle network which benefits commuter and recreational users.

Each year, there is a program of works to construct new or replace existing shared paths, install complementary facilities such as bicycle racks and wayfinding signage as well as undertake educational, encouragement and evaluation activities to encourage people to use this mode of transport as an alternative to vehicles.
