Footpath Blitz Final V1

Repair blitz on broken footpaths

Marion Council is calling on the community to nominate the worst footpaths in the city as part of a year-long repair blitz.

The Council has announced an unprecedented campaign – Footpath Blitz – to identify and repair broken footpaths across the city.

The campaign is in response to the community telling us they want the quality of their footpaths improved.


What will we do?

Council will inspect and assess every footpath nominated by residents.

Priority will be given to fixing those that are unsafe while footpaths that are unsightly will be listed for repair.

Repairs will start from 1 July 2020. If a footpath upgrade is either side of a private driveway, Council will offer a contribution of 50 per cent to the landowner to replace the driveway.

Marion currently spends about $1.73 million a year on maintaining 860km footpaths and 6900 kerb ramps in the city.

How can you nominate a footpath?

Residents will have until 29 May 2020, to lodge examples of poor local footpaths using our Making Marion web portal or by writing to us.

Council needs the location and, where possible, a photograph of the damaged infrastructure.
