The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics (DIPL) has completed a review of Northern Territory Government (NTG) owned shared paths across Greater Darwin, Katherine, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs.

The review is key to continuing strategic development of shared paths in line with stakeholder and community needs for the next 10 years.

The purpose of the review was to assess the existing NTG shared path networks and provide recommendations for:

  • improvements to existing shared paths
  • enhanced connectivity and network extensions between the existing network including between NTG roads and local council roads
  • long term planning, monitoring and review.

A number of key considerations guided the review including efficiency, safety and connectivity.
