Upgrades to Eaton Foreshore walkways begin

Work will start Monday (21 September) on a project to upgrade a two kilometre section of walkways along the Collie River Foreshore in Eaton.

First is the widening of a section of the path from the carpark opposite the Eaton Bowling Club to the lookout point at Hands Avenue.

In addition, work will also be undertaken in the area to stabilise the riverbank. Signs will be in place along the walkway to advise path users.

The Shire of Dardanup received funding from the State Government to deliver ‘The Leschenault Historic Walk Trail’ along a section of the Collie River.

This trail is an extension of works already undertaken in the Shire of Harvey along the Australind section of the Leschenault Estuary.

The section of the trail within the Shire of Dardanup will link to the Australind section and will be approximately two kilometres in length. It will run along the southern side of the Collie River between the Old Coast Road Bridge and Hands Avenue Lookout.

The trail is intended to be multi-purpose catering for recreational pedestrians and cyclists and will highlight the local area’s cultural and natural heritage through a series of interpretive signs featuring local historical stories and images.
