Hull Road Concrete Footpath

Residents of Hull Rd have been informed that council will be constructing a concrete footpath on the eastern side of Hull Rd between Chapman Ave and Albert rd.  Work will commence mid February and take about six weeks to complete. This is welcome news. The Trust has been lobbying council for many years that the construction of this section of footpath should have a high priority based on road safety grounds.  Hull Rd acts as a link for traffic at this point funnelling traffic and together with the steep grades in the dip vehicles often exceed the speed limit.  Pedestrians , including mothers with strollers, are forced to walk on the road as the footpath is too uneven. One of Council’s arguments for the delay in construction has been always been the high construction costs and consequently a lack of available funds.
