Strategic Cycling Corridors Melbourne's East and South East

We’re working together with City of Whitehorse and City of Monash to investigate 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

About the project

The three locations we're investigating are:

  1. Melbourne CBD to Scoresby, between Warrigal Road and Waverley Road
  2. Box Hill to Ashburton
  3. Chirnside Park to Mordialloc.  specifically: 
    • Melbourne Water Pipe Track Reserve (Nunawading Station to Forster Road, or Nunawading Station to Waverley Road connecting to the Scotchmans Creek Trail).
    • Forster Road to Monash University
    • Monash University to Clayton Station

Before we finalise our plans we're asking you for your views.

The safety treatments we’re exploring are:

  1. New on-road and off-road paths
  2. Safer crossing  (where paths cross roads)
  3. Traffic lights, raised crossings and coloured paths
  4. Road markings
  5. Improved signs

What happens next?

Your feedback and suggestions will be reviewed and influence the final designs.  

City of Whitehorse and City of Monash will keep the community informed as they further consult before the installation of these safety improvements.
