Making Broome safer and more accessible for walkers, joggers, pram pushers, cyclists and anyone exercising or commuting without a car is the aim of work now underway around town.

Significant work is being carried out to connect Broome as part of a 10-year plan to expand the network of footpaths and dual-use paths including connecting major nodes at Chinatown, Town Beach and Cable Beach with 3m-wide dual-use paths; integrated arterial roads with 2m-wide footpaths on both sides of the road; local roads with a 2m-wide footpath on one side; and no-through roads with a 1.5m-wide footpath on one side.

The plan is also being guided by the Shire’s Recreation Trails Master Plan that was developed in 2016 with significant community input. 

Recent achievements include completing work to connect Broome North to the main town site with work along Old Broome Rd and Gubinge Rd; State Black Spot-funded projects at Garnboor Ln in Six Seasons, and Carnarvon St between the Mangrove Resort and Frederick St; extending the footpath along Lullfitz Dve from Millington Rd to Frangipani Dve, and Barker St (from Herbert St to Hamersley St) and the full length of Hunter St.
