To make one of our most popular walks more accessible for our community, we will soon be upgrading the walking trail up to Tamworth's Oxley Lookout.
Work completed on the trail will include:
- the installation of steps to make walking easier for our community and reduce erosion of the track
- new signage to clearly identify points along the trail
- the removal of hazards to make the trail safer for all
- the installation of park furniture along the route - even the fittest walkers get puffed occasionally!
This project has been made possible by the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program, with the Tamworth region benefiting from $6 million in total to be spent improving local infrastructure. In the first phase of funding, our region was allocated $2.65 million, with a further $3.41 million received under the program’s second phase.
