Bridge links up Busselton

It's been talked about for decades and has taken 17 years to build but the bike and pedestrian path between Busselton and Dunsborough is now a reality.

The final section of the 31km path, a bridge over Toby Inlet, has been finished and the path will be officially opened tomorrow.

City of Busselton mayor Ian Stubbs said the pathway, which stretches from Port Geographe to Dunsborough, provided an important physical link between the region's two major towns and was a tangible symbol of unity.

Cr Stubbs said the pathway had been one of the city's longest-running projects and funding from the Department of Transport had allowed the final stage of the pathway, including the footbridge over Toby Inlet, to be fast-tracked.

To celebrate the opening of the pathway, local bike riders will be invited to participate in the Geographe Pedal tomorrow, a free event that will take riders from the Busselton foreshore to the Dunsborough foreshore, starting at 9am.
