Two kilometres is four laps of an AFL oval, 200m shy of the Busselton Jetty and the length of the new multi-use path that has been constructed between South Western Highway and the Harvey Dam. The $600,000 path was built to enable a safer trip for people wanting to walk or ride their bike to Harvey’s dam facilities on Weir Road. The red path is 2m wide and weaves through bushland just east of the Harvey townsite. Harvey shire manager of technical services Rick Lotznicker said the path would be great for children, the elderly and people who were looking for a spot to exercise. “It provides a great link from the highway to the dam,” Mr Lotznicker said. “It could even be beneficial for tourists who could park in the bus bay and walk or ride to the dam.” There will also be maps and information at the visitor centre to make tourists aware of the new path. Harvey shire president Paul Gillett believed it was a great addition to the town. “The dam area is an under-utilised facility,” Cr Gillett said. “This is a great area within the shire and it has a lot of potential.” There are also discussions surrounding lowering the speed limit on Weir Road to accommodate pedestrians. The path is expected to be completed by the end of next month.
