Council has an ongoing program of cycleway maintenance to repair trip hazards and replace damaged or worn areas in accordance with its footpath/cycleway repair and replacement program. Council will only replace a footpath/cycleway after assessing the nature and extent of damage, use and other safety factors.
All requests for new cycleways and footpaths should be made in writing to the General Manager:Did you know that every litre of petrol you use in your car puts 2.6kg of CO2 into the atmosphere - AGO Factor Emission Workbook 2005. Combine this with a growing population for the shire and its no surprise that vehicles are forecast to overtake housing as the largest source of local greenhouse gas emission by 2010 - Tweed Shire Local Action Plan for Greenhouse Gas Reduction (659kB PDF).
Leaving the car at home and walking, riding, car-pooling, telecommuting or catching public transport is a simple way to take action against human induced climate change.
