Council has an ongoing program of planned maintenance. We only replace a footpath or cycleway after assessing a site for safety and condition.

Shared paths

Council looks after more than 100 km of off-road shared paths in the Tweed.

Shared paths are for both pedestrians and cyclists. When riding, please slow down when approaching children, older people and dogs.

Pedestrian and bike plan

pedestrian_and_bike_pathway_1277291-2629702.jpg Council’s Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan will be replaced by a new Tweed Pedestrian and Bike Plan.

Community consultation will help guide our ongoing investment in the pedestrian and bike network across the Tweed. The plan will include a 10-year action plan for delivering pedestrian and cycling infrastructure.

We sought feedback from cyclists with all levels of experience and all types of pedestrians. Pedestrians include people who walk, run, push a pram, use a mobility aid, mobility scooter, roller skate or skateboard.
