Community News Pathway To Embrace Today

'Pathway to embrace today'

Tapa Martinthi Yala means 'Pathway to embrace today' in Kaurna.

The opening of this northern section means that people can now currently walk or ride their bike from Salisbury to Gawler, all off-road by utilising the Little Para River Trail, Tapa Martinthi Yala shared use path and the Stuart O’Grady Bikeway (which runs alongside the Northern Expressway).

Now we are delighted to announce that the Southern Section of this trail is now open from Bolivar to the Port River Bikeway running alongside the Port River Expressway (meaning you can ride from Salisbury to the outskirts of Port Adelaide on a Cycling and Walking shared use path).

This is a significant piece of shared-use infrastructure, offering both walkers and cyclists a long-distance option that is safe for active transport users with key destinations at both ends.

The Tapa Martinthi Yala Shared Use Path connects the new Port River Bikeway and the Stuart O’Grady Bikeway, creating around 43km of continuous paths from Gawler to Port Adelaide. It will also link to the Gawler Greenway (and the City) in the future.
