Path to open the Condamine River to people with a disability

A NEW section of the Condamine River footpath is nearly complete, giving Warwick residents more options to exercise.

Southern Downs Mayor Tracy Dobie said the path offered big benefits.

"It'll be good for everyone,” she said.

"This is all about people getting outside, enjoying the fresh air and exercising.

"That can be walking, cycling, running or walking your dog.”

The path is extra wide and Cr Dobie said it was designed so residents with disabilities could use it with ease.

"Even if you have mobility problems you can get out and enjoy the fresh air,” she said.

When complete, residents will be able to run or walk from Bunnings Warehouse to the base of Weewondilla hill.

The pathway cost about $115,000 and was paid for through the State Government Works for Queensland program.
