Howard Springs to Coolalinga Shared Cycle Path

The Howard Springs to Coolalinga Shared Cycle Path provides a shared path network from Palmerston through to the new shopping precinct at Coolalinga, giving Territorians healthier travel options.

Construction was completed in December 2019.

The new path follows the route of the old National Australian Rail Corridor, promoting alternative travel options for residents, visitors and commuters between Coolalinga, Howard Springs, Palmerston and Darwin – significantly extending the regional shared path network.

The path incorporates hand railings fabricated by Correctional Services, and heritage features which include the remaining structures of two original railway bridges and other elements of the National Australian Rail Corridor – acknowledging the history behind it.

For safety reasons, there will be no vehicle access along or across the path. However, a formal crossing is in place where the path connects to Grice Crescent.
