Shrimptons Creek Project


Walking down the Shripmton's Creek shared path at night can be scary business. While lighting and upgrades are in place for some sections, others are not.

Acting on what residents have raised with me, I'm proposing the installation of lights along unlit sections of the path. If we are to encourage people to stay out of their cars and walk to Macquarie Park, we need to make sure that the shared path is safe for everyone.

I have put in a Councillor's budget bid to secure funding for the Shrimpton's Creek Project. Please sign below petition to help me convince other Councillors that this will be a great investment for our community.


To Councillors of the City of Ryde

Dear Councillors,

I encourage you to endorse the Mayor, Councillor Jerome Laxale's, plan to install lighting along unlit sections of the Shrimpton's creek shared path. 

If we are to encourage people to be active and to reduce their reliance on a car, providing safe passage to Macquarie Park along this path is essential.

There are currently segments that are pitch black at night, whereas others are lit.

Some well designed, low voltage lights would make this path more accessible, safe and provide a vital link for locals.

    A suburb with house prices over $1 million shouldn’t be stuck in the stone age. We should be able to go for night jogs and get home safely.

    Used to ride my bike along this path as a teenager up to 5 times a week. Some lighting would go a long way to making it more user friendly out of daylight hours

    Our family use the Shrimptons Creek shared path to get to and from Kent Road Public School and we walk the dog along this path to the leash-free area at the ESL Hall Park—but only during daylight hours. We would use this path after hours if it had better lighting.
