Ballarat’s much maligned Sturt Street shared path looks set to finally be completed this month.

The majority of works are now done however new pedestrian lights are yet to be switched on at multiple intersections.

Council CEO Evan King says he understands the community’s frustration.

“We hope they’ll all be switched on this month, obviously this is a process that also involves the Department of Transport.”

“The four intersections all need to be done at the same stage, so the signals need to be installed and connected at the same time,” Mr King said.

According to the Department of Transport the design of the path protects the historic integrity of Sturt Street’s iconic central gardens whilst providing safe access for cyclists and pedestrians.
