A Labor government would spend more than a million dollars on improving shared pathways in Shellharbour if elected on Saturday.
Shellharbour City Council would get almost $1.4 million in federal funding to fix pathways for pedestrians and cyclists at three locations.
The big winner is around Moore Street at Oak Flats, where just over $1 million will be spent to build new pathways around the lake.
A section of the pathway at Warilla Beach will be re-aligned at a cost of $65,000 and a Shellharbour Foreshore connection will get $250,000.
"I had a sit down with council and said 'show us where the gaps are in your bike plan strategy'," Whitlam MP Stephen Jones said.
"I was very keen to get the connecting one through Oak Flats because that's really important around the lake there.
The extension of the Shellharbour foreshore bike path will take it all the way through the developing suburbs of Shell Cove. It sort of comes to a rude halt at the moment.
"With the Warilla bike path, there's a very big development going on at the surf club there so we need to re-route the bike path around that."
Mr Jones said the council had been looking at these projects and the funds would be available when work was ready to start.
"They've been in the planning for some time, so we should be able to start laying concrete very, very soon," he said.
The announcement follows on from last week's promise of more than $1 million for better shared pathways in Sharon Bird's electorate of Cunningham.
Mr Jones wouldn't be drawn on whether the pathway money for Shellharbour was the last bit of funding for the region before Saturday's election.
However, he did point out Labor had focused a lot of attention on the Illawarra.
"If you put together everything we've announced so far, together with these bike paths, it's one of the biggest and most comprehensive set of election commitments we have made in the Illawarra and South Coast area ever," he said.
