About the project

Townsville City Council plans to construct a pathway along the northern side of First Street between Second Avenue and Flowers Street, and along the southern side of First Street between Flowers Street and Railway Avenue.

This project is funded by the Queensland Government under the School Transport Infrastructure Program (STIP).

The STIP provides funding for projects that improve the safety and operations of transport at schools and provide long term road safety improvements for all road users travelling to and from a school and/or travelling near a school in Queensland.

As part of these works, Council will:

  • Construct two sections of 2.5-metre-wide plain concrete pathway
  • Reconstruct an associated section of kerb and channel fronting the First Street entrance into Townsville State High School
  • Reconstruct identified driveway crossovers and accesses along the northern side of First Street between Second Avenue and Flowers Street
  • Reseal a section of First Street between Second Avenue and Flowers Street to accommodate car park widening at the First Street entrance into Townsville State High School, and
  • Remove vegetation as required.


How can you get involved?

Council values community feedback on all our projects and initiatives, and invites residents to submit their feedback on the proposed pathway upgrade.

The short feedback form can be found on this page.

How long is the consultation period?

Public Consultation on the proposed pathway upgrade will run from Monday 22 September until Monday 12 October.
