The City of Kwinana has completed construction of a new footpath along Barwell Road, from Medina Avenue to Pace Road thanks to the Local Road and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) Program and the Federally Funded COVID-19 Stimulus Package. Construction on the footpath commenced 14 September and was completed within three weeks.

The Local Road and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) Program aims to assist a community-led recovery from COVID-19 by supporting local jobs, firms, and procurement. It is expected councils, where possible, will use local businesses and workforces to deliver projects under the LRCI Program to ensure stimulus funding flows into local communities.

Mayor Carol Adams said thanks to the LRCI Program and the COVID-19 Stimulus Package the City was able to improve accessibility in Medina and reduce the risk of potential injury especially to the elderly living in the area.

“The City is pleased to dedicate stimulus funding to deliver projects the community have requested. It is great to see suggestions from residents put into action and to hear they are happy with the outcome.”

“Previously there was no footpath in a well used pedestrian area which highlighted a major safety concern. The new footpath allows local residents to safely move around the area,” she said.
