Background

The University to Launceston CBD trail is a popular and vital connection between the city and Newnham campus, promoting an active and lively University community. Despite being a well-used facility, narrow sections and poor visibility at night compromise rider safety and the full potential of the shared path. An upgrade of the facility, including a widening of the shared path and increased lighting along the connection, will support and encourage bicycle movements for years to come.
