Scope

  • Replace existing clay paver paths with concrete pathways and permeable paving.
  • Widened path for all-abilities access

Benefits

  • Permeable paving encourages water to infiltrate through the pavement surface and substructure to the ground below, easing the pressure on these already overburdened systems.
  • Allows water and air to access to roots of vegetation
  • Water and air circulation can assist in reducing heat island effects
  • A wider pathway to accommodate people using prams, mobility scooters and wheelchairs
  • A wider pathway to allow for turning and passing
  • Renewed pathways will improve general accessibility to the public

Funding

This project was made possible with Works for Queensland funding.
