TMR’s Active Transport Investment Program has provided more than $1.7 million towards a shared path on Thursday Island. Stage 3 of the build, worth $1.38 million, will add another 750 metres to the path by the end of 2019. 

Providing dedicated and connected infrastructure is making it safer and faster for people to ride on the island. It’s helping to improve fitness and health in the local community, which is particularly important in remote regions, where there are often limited opportunities for active transport.

This project is also providing training and job opportunities for local residents. Already, 10 jobseekers have successfully moved from training into paid work, and more are undergoing training as a direct result of this investment.
