Wilson Street Shared Bike Path Project

Last Updated: 7 October 2020

The detailed design for cyclists and pedestrians to safely travel between Port and South Hedland is being developed as part of the Wilson Street Shared Bike Path Project, which is being funded equally by the Town and through a Western Australia Bicycle Network (WABN) grant from the Department of Transport.

This Project intends to link the cycle network from Redbank Bridge to Cooke Point Drive and McGregor Street in Port Hedland. Currently, the path from South Hedland ceases at Redbank Bridge and does not extend to Port Hedland.

Once completed, the linked pathway will encourage more residents to cycle and walk between Port and South Hedland, as well as linking tourists to key points of interest.

A suitable candidate to perform the detailed design works will be determined via the Town's procurement process.
