Initiative 1

Advocate to and work with the Victorian Government (Department of Transport) to develop the Strategic Cycling Corridor network within Boroondara

Initiative 1 is in line with our guiding principles of:

  • Connected and complete bicycle network
  • Safe bicycle riding experience.

Strategic Cycling Corridors (SCC) are the most important cycling routes for transport and connecting important destinations. For off-road sections of the SCC network, our preferred option is to separate paths for pedestrians and bicycle riders to minimise potential conflict and improve safety. 

We would like to have completely separate paths that are clearly defined. Depending on site conditions, this could be separation with a vegetation strip or kerb.

If this is not possible in some sections, we may need to use linemarking and/or different pavement materials to define the separate paths. 

We will need to complete site-specific investigations and community consultation to find out the best approach for each section.
