Enabling a Safer Commute for the Community
Ethos Urban were delighted to be engaged with the Queensland Government Department of Housing and Public Works on behalf of the Cherbourg Aboriginal Shire Council, to prepare a concept design for the proposed construction of a separated ‘cultural pathway’ to enable pedestrians, cyclists, prams, mobility scooters to safely commute from Cherbourg to Murgon beside Cherbourg Road.
Technical input was provided by from South Burnett Regional Council and funding from the National Indigenous Australians Agency and the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships to prepare a concept design for the proposed construction of a separated ‘cultural pathway’ to enable pedestrians, cyclists, prams, mobility scooters to safely commute from Cherbourg to Murgon beside Cherbourg Road.
Ethos Urban's Our design, planning and GIS teams worked together with all our project partners to develop the Cherbourg Cultural Pathway concept design for this important piece of community infrastructure over two stages. The first addressed the pathway alignment and topographical challenges that included several creek crossings of differing sizes requiring a variety of appropriate design responses, steep topography and varying grade changes. The second stage was focused on the ‘cultural’ aspects of the project as well as rest zones, key amenity considerations and improvements.
The concept design was supported planning advice to identify the appropriate approval pathway, stakeholders and requirements to facilitate the detailed design and construction of the pathway.
