The anticipated final stretch of the Slacks Tracks pathway is now open for cyclists and pedestrians.
The newest section of the pathway links Reserve Park and the Pacific Highway service road via Rowland Street and includes a 35-tonne bridge over Slacks Creek.
Logan City council contributed $1.2million to the project, with $2.7million coming from the federal government and $350,000 from the Queensland government.
The pathway was officially opened by councillor Mindy Russell and councillor Teresa Lane with federal treasurer Jim Chalmers, who claims to frequent the pathway himself.
“I run on the Slacks Tracks pathway all the time – it’s a beautiful part of our community and I’ve seen firsthand how these improvements are transforming this area,” Mr Chalmers said.
“Not only will it take cars off our roads and improve access to the Slacks Creek industrial precinct, it’s a beautiful track for cyclists and pedestrians to enjoy.
“Projects like this one are also a real boon for our economy, helping to create local jobs and stimulate investment in our community.”
