The City was successful in receiving WABN grant funding to create a new shared pathway on Hudson Ave, Girrawheen Ave and Wade Ct in Girrawheen. The shared path upgrade was co-funded by the City and the Department of Transport (DoT). DoT provided $ 371,712 through the WA Bicycle Network Grants Program to fund 50% of the project.
On Tuesday the 25th of July 2023, it was the official opening of the shared path, whereby students from Our Lady of Mercy Primary school (OLOM) braved the rain and officially opened the pathway with a ribbon cutting with Mayor Linda Aitken, Councillor Natalie Herridge, Deputy Mayor Brett Treby, Councillor James Rowe as well as the State Member for Parliament Meredith Hammat MLA.

The Hudson Ave, Girrawheen Ave, Wade Ct Shared Pathway Project forms part of the City’s Active Transport Plan 2022/23 to 2025/26 and is intended to encourage active transport in the community by providing a high-quality connection that links residents to local attractions, businesses, and facilities in the area. We look forward to seeing students walking cycling and scooting to school on their new path.
