The new bike lanes will connect into Melbourne’s existing bike lane network and provide a safe, efficient, sustainable transport alternative that will support physical distancing and get the city moving again as COVID-19 restrictions are eased.

The new lanes are key routes identified in City of Melbourne's Transport Strategy 2030 which was developed with extensive community consultation over 2018 and 2019. The routes are also Strategic Cycling Corridors identified by the Victorian Government.

The Strategy sets Council’s vision for Melbourne to be Australia’s premier bicycle city. More people will be confident to ride with a connected network of safe and protected bicycle lanes and high-quality bicycle parking facilities.

This program is being funded and delivered by City of Melbourne, with selected projects receiving co funding from the Victorian Government's $100 million Melbourne City Recovery Fund.

Get involved

Feedback collected will help us to continually identify where improvements are needed and evaluate the impact of these projects. Some examples of things we may be able to change as a result of this feedback include:

  • Changing neighbourhood parking controls (for example – changing time limits, operating times and possibly introducing metred parking fees that resident permit holders would be exempt from). These changes can help manage local worker or visitor parking demands and open up more available parking space for residents.
  • Small scale infrastructure improvements to improve road safety and access. For example we may be able to adjust the location of some kerbs and islands if necessary.
  • Measures to improve road user and bike behaviour – including signage, behaviour change programs, wayfinding and other interventions.
  • Providing links and support for people to gain skills and confidence in riding.
  • Understanding positive impacts of the project that could be used to inform future planning on other projects.
