New Shared Cycle and Pedestrian Paths for Bowen

Two new shared paths have been completed this month on Queens Road and Argyle Park Road in Bowen.

With a combined length of 2.5 kilometres, the two 2.5-metre-wide paths, they’ve been designed according to Whitsunday Council with safety and accessibility in mind.

Mayor Andrew Willcox says the high-quality infrastructure would greatly benefit Bowen residents.

“The new paths mean all bike riders, including children and beginners, have the option of riding their bikes separately to the traffic.”

“The wider paths allow both bike riders and pedestrians to move about more safely and easily.”

The Mayor says the shared path on Argyle Park Road was installed on the western side of the road and will improve connectivity through to Queens Beach.

“Queens Road also has a new shared path on the eastern side of the road, connecting the Bowen town centre with Mullers Lagoon and Queens Beach. “
