Carrum Downs to Seaford Shared Use Path Improvements

We’re building a safer and more convenient place to ride and walk for the communities of Carrum Downs and Seaford. 

Project update – July 2020

We’ve commenced work to upgrade the 5.6km walking and cycling link between Lyrebird Drive, Carrum Downs and McKenzie Street, Seaford. The current route has sections of sealed shared use path, footpath and unsealed path.

Once completed, the upgrade will provide a continuous path, safer crossings with new lighting, new signage and easier access to parks, shops, and transport.

Crews will be starting work in mid-July at Seaford and will work progressively towards Carrum Downs. The path is expected to be ready for the community to enjoy in December. 

Crews will be working 9.00am - 5.00pm, Monday to Friday. 

At times, we may need to divert pedestrians and cyclists around the work zone on the path. We will always ensure there is a safe and clearly marked route available. 

Project background 

The Victorian Government has invested $1.5 million to upgrade the 5.6km Carrum Downs to Seaford cycling and walking path. This funding is part of the Victorian Government’s $100 million investment to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety for all Victorians.

The location

Situated within the local council of City of Frankston, the path will start at the end of McKenzie Street near the Edithvale – Seaford Wetlands in Seaford and end at Lyrebird Drive in Carrum Downs towards the east.

Benefits of the Shared Use Path

The shared use path will provide the local community safer access to popular destinations including the Seaford train station, Station Street Mall and the Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands.

Other benefits include:

  • encouraging the community to use active modes of transport
  • the use of the path as an East – West connection
  • integration of this trail with a new SUP being delivered by Level Crossing Removal Projects (to be complete by late 2022)
  • a more direct connection to various recreational activity centres located in the project area (such as the wetlands and beach).
