- Urban footpaths - 312km, walkways – 4km.
- Rural footpaths - 3km.
- Generally urban streets have a footpath on at least one side. A few streets have none at the residents' request. In busy areas two footpaths are provided.
- In high traffic areas, such as near shopping centres, the footpath is generally constructed from kerb to boundary i.e. more than 3m wide.
- Clear access for pedestrians by mowing and tree trimming to specified distances from the path.
- Berms are mown generally twice yearly where not maintained by residents. The grass is kept to 200mm or less. Other specified road berms are mowed to a higher standard e.g. Georgetti Road to 100mm and Burton Avenue centre island to 75mm. Steep banks are maintained for safety, visibility and tidiness.
- Autumn leaf removal is undertaken in streets with deciduous trees.
- Pram crossings are installed where wheeled traffic is common.
- Bumps, hollows and lips are repaired where these would cause problems for pedestrians, pushchairs, mobility scooters etc.
- Litter bins are placed in areas of demand, such as shopping centres, and are emptied regularly.
