The $ 1.2 million Logan Village River Link has officially opened and provides a direct link between the expanding residential areas along the river and the popular Logan Village Green.
The 2.5-meter-wide concrete path, bridge and underpass also prevent residents of subdivisions, including My Home and the river, from crossing bustling Anzac Avenue to the commercial areas of Logan Village.
Logan City Council has provided as part of the $ 2 million Logan Village Implementation Fund, the project includes the installation of new security cameras, additional lighting and an observation deck overlooking the Logan River nearby, these project components being funded through the Division 4 Local Improvement Program.
The Logan Village River Link complements other Council-funded projects in the region, including:
- Logan Village Green Family Adventure Playground
- Improvements to Logan Village Green, including improved drainage and landscaping and relocation of the skate park (expected to begin soon)
- The Logan Village at Yarrabilba Rail Trail, currently under construction and expected to be completed by the end of the year.
Logan City Council Economic Development Chairman Deputy Mayor Jon Raven said Logan Village River
Link was one of the outcomes of the 2018 Logan Village Forum hosted by the Council, informing that “the local community told us they wanted improved connectivity in the center, better access to the Logan River and the activation of local spaces.
“The River Link performs absolutely well on every level,” said Councilor Raven.
City Lifestyle President Councilor Laurie Koranski said the Logan Village River Link helps showcase the area’s natural beauty and rich history, adding that “residents and visitors can now stroll along the trail while taking in beautiful views of the river, explore our historic buildings, enjoy the family play area on the Green, then shop and dine in the Logan Village shopping district.
“This is another important step towards our vision of developing Logan Village into a must-see riverside destination for craft experiences and an extraordinary lifestyle. “
