PLANS to build a shared pedestrian-bike path alongside Eleventh Street towards Nichols Point will put users at risk of serious injury or even death, says the owner of a business where the route will pass. 

Mildura Council plans to run the path on the southern side of Eleventh Street, largely to connect users between the growing population base at Nichols Point and Mildura.

Calum McKinnon, who runs Titto’s Store and petrol station between Sandilong and Karadoc avenues on the southern side of busy Eleventh Street, said the path would become a death trap and should be moved to the safer northern side of the street.
