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. In 2018/19 a total budget allocation of $848K has been provided for reconstruction and construction of footpaths to improve connectivity across the municipality.

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.
