Bike Plan endorsed by Council

March 17, 2016

The City of Melbourne’s Bicycle Plan 2016-20 was endorsed by Council on 15 March 2016.

The plan aims to increase bike use to one in four vehicles entering the city in the morning and eliminating serious crashes from the network.

Thank you to everyone who provided their feedback on the draft, we had an overwhelming response with more than 7140 contributions from the community.

The next step will be to implement the measures outlined in the Bicycle Plan to further improve our city’s cycling network including:

  • Increasing bicycle parking by 2000 in key public locations and installing bicycle maintenance stations and counters at entrances to the city
  • Creating local neighbourhood routes in Kensington, North Melbourne, Carlton and Southbank - connecting to schools, shops and community facilities
  • Improving connections into and through the city centre including a possible second bike friendly east-west connection through the central city. This would complement La Trobe Street and improve bicycle access and transit across the southern part of the central city.
