Urunga footbridge ready for feet

HAVE you walked along the Urunga Footbridge recently?

With the completion of the most recent extension there is now almost one-and-a-half kilometres of walkway throughout the mangroves and out to the beach.

The latest 400 metres means there is now easy access for all to the end of the breakwall – and the views are stunning.

For Bellingen Shire Mayor Mark Troy it is the realisation of a long-held dream.

“This so-called ‘City to Surf' footbridge has long been an ambition,” Cr Troy said.

“It is so fortunate things have fallen in to place.”

Funding for the project ($400,000) came from Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water and NSW Land and Property Management.

And there's more to come.

Cr Troy said funding for the first part of the shared path from Urunga to Hungry Head had also been received.

The footbridge is due to be officially opened in mid-November.
