The Town has approximately 75 kilometres of footpath, in varying width and condition that it must maintain for the benefit and use of the public.
Footpaths and shared paths provide a stable uninterrupted travel path for pedestrians and cyclists to safely make their way about the Town.
My footpath is damaged, what do I do?
Should you find that any of the footpaths or shared paths within Mosman Park are damaged or obstructed in some way (vehicles, vegetation etc.), please report it using this report it link, by phone on 08 9383 6600, or alternatively via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why does my street not have a footpath?
Footpaths may be omitted from one side of the street where:
- Topography or vegetation precludes provision for a footpath (i.e. tree avenues, power poles).
- Vehicle speeds are low i.e less than 40 km/h.
- Future traffic volumes will be less than 300 vehicles per day.
- Where the street does not connect or contact land uses which generates high levels of pedestrian activity.
Can you install a new footpath in my street?
Please get in contact with us. The Town will investigate the availability of a footpath to be constructed in that location. The construction of a new footpath needs to get through the Towns budgeting process which will be approved through Council. When requesting a footpath installation please submit as much relevant information as possible to help support your request.
My footpath is narrow. How wide should it be?
The minimum clearance along the footpath should be 1.2 m to ensure universal access is maintained.
Can I ride my bike on the footpath?
Anyone can cycle on a footpath, but there are some conditions. Visit the Department of Transport website for more information.
