Council has budgeted more than $1 million to build new footpaths and 98 percent of the money will be spent linking two subdivisions on the outskirts of Beaudesert.
“The Budget provides for the extension of the important shared footpath and bikeway link along Beaudesert-Nerang Road, between Kingsley Drive and Brooklands Drive, as well as minor footpath works across the region,” Mayor Greg Christensen said.
The Budget papers indicate that $996,000 is the estimated cost of the footpath and bikeway link along the Beaudesert-Nerang Road.
The remaining allocation for new footpaths in the Scenic Rim in the current financial year is $21,000.
