Draft Bicycle Plan 2016-2020

We have developed a draft plan to further improve our bicycle network and boost the number of people riding bikes. The draft plan is based on 7000 contributions we received from the community in April and May this year and talking to other stakeholders such as the Victorian Government, Victoria Police and bicycle groups.

Over the next four years we’re aiming to further boost the number of people riding into the city and encourage residents to use bikes around their local neighbourhood. The draft plan lays out practical measures to make the city more bicycle-friendly including:

  • Creating local neighbourhood routes to connect schools, shops and community facilities
  • Improving connections into and through the city along four cycling corridors
  • Increasing bicycle parking by 800 in key public locations
  • Installing bicycle maintenance stations and counters at entrances to the city.
