The Middleton Grange community will benefit from a new entry point to M7 Shared Path
The Mayor of Liverpool, Ned Mannoun, today announced that a new entry point to the M7 shared path at Middleton Drive will benefit residents of Middleton Grange and surrounding communities for many years to come.
Open to the public from 21 June 2022, the new entry point onto the M7 shared path will be integrated with the surrounding pedestrian and cycle networks, linking Middleton Grange to Parramatta to the west, Camden Valley Way to the east and the network of M5 cycle paths.
Initiated by Liverpool City Council in direct response to community needs, Mayor Mannoun said the link will bring significant improvements to health, leisure and transport in and around Middleton Grange.
“We are delighted to provide this new entry point to the M7 shared path at Middleton Grange, which will help improve the quality of life for residents of the Liverpool Local Government Area, while connecting them seamlessly to the surrounding areas. .”
“Users will benefit from alternative transport and a recreational route, accessing employment hubs such as Norwest and Eastern Creek, as well as the Western Sydney Parklands which is home to over 60 kilometers of tracks and trails,” said Mayor Mannoun.
Mayor Mannoun also acknowledged the continued support of Westlink M7 without which this project would not have been possible.
“Westlink M7 have been delighted to work with Liverpool City Council to provide an additional entry point to the Westlink M7 shared path at Middleton Drive,” said Westlink M7 Executive Managing Director Ian Whitfield.
“Allowing residents to safely access the shared path significantly improves active travel opportunities for residents of Middleton Grange.”
The Westlink M7 shared path runs nearly 40 kilometers from Prestons to Baulkham Hills, running alongside the Westlink M7, separated from road traffic.
“This is just another example of how Council is working hard to meet the needs of the community now and in the future,” said Mayor Mannoun.
Liverpool City Council has also begun survey and design work for a future connection between Middleton Drive and Aviation Road. This project will also include the design of a new pedestrian and cycle bridge, linking the newly completed shared path at Middleton Drive to the M7 shared path, providing further connectivity options for the community.
