Strategic Cycling Corridors Melbourne's East and South East

We’re working together with City of Whitehorse and City of Monash to implement safety improvements for cyclists and pedestrians along three Strategic Cycling Corridors.

This will help create a safer environment for pedestrians and cyclists and provide a viable alternative mode of transport for both recreational and commuter cyclists.

Project background

We recognise that vulnerable road users, like pedestrians and cyclists, children and the elderly are most at risk on our roads.

This project is part of the Victorian Governments $100 million Safe Cyclists and Pedestrians Fund.

Three community information sessions were held in September 2017. Potential upgrades to three Strategic Cycling Corridors in Melbourne’s East and South East were presented at these sessions. 

The community was asked to provide comment on the potential improvements being investigated and the majority of feedback was supportive of our proposals.

About the project

The three cycling corridors where upgrades are being delivered are:

  • CBD to Scoresby, between Warrigal Road and Waverley Road
  • Box Hill to Ashburton
    • The proposed improvements for the CBD to Scoresby corridor and the Box Hill to Ashburton corridor presented at the information sessions held in September 2017 are being delivered. 
  • Chirnside Park to Mordialloc. specifically:
    • Syndal Station to Monash University
    • Monash University to Clayton Station

VicRoads has been working closely with it's partner agencies to investigate the option of constructing the trail through Pipe Track Reserve. Unfortunately, we will not be able to construct the shared use path through the Pipe Track Reserve due to issues with the pipes in the reserve and the original proposal linking Nunawading and Syndal Station will not be built. 

Works to connect Syndal Station and Nunawading Station can be revisited once the important maintenance works have been completed.

The safety treatments being delivered include new on road and off road paths, safer crossings, new traffic lights and improved road markings and coloured paths.

What happens next?

We will inform the wider community of the decision that has been made and look to begin construction by late 2018.
