After months of construction, the Wilson Street Shared Path project is in its final week. The $1.4 million project will connect Port and South Hedland through a shared cycle and pedestrian path, with the construction of more than 6km of shared pathway. Asphalting work is now ongoing, marking the start of the final phase of the project. The shared pathway will link Wilson Street to McGregor St and Cooke Point Drive in Port Hedland and then continue on to Redbank Bridge, where the current pathway from South Hedland ends. The project is a joint initiative between the Town of Port Hedland and WA Government, with funding provided by the Department of Transport’s Western Australia Bicycle Network. Mayor Peter Carter has expressed his excitement about the shared pathway, which he said would provide a safe and healthy way for residents and visitors to explore the region. “The linked pathway will give cyclists and pedestrians safe passage all the way from Port to South Hedland for the first time,” he said. The project is expected to be completed by June, and will be a significant boost for the local community.
