Carrum Downs to Seaford Shared Use Path Improvements

We’re upgrading a 5.6km long cycling and pedestrian path to connect Seaford with Carrum Downs.

Project background 

The Victorian Government is investing $100 million to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety for all Victorians.

As part of this program, we’re upgrading the existing shared use path (SUP) from Seaford to Carrum Downs to provide better connection and accessibility for locals and visitors alike.

The location

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

Project details

We expect to begin construction on the Carrum Downs to Seaford Shared Use Path (SUP) upgrade in mid-2020 and complete works by December 2020.

The path will provide a safer 5.6km connection for pedestrians and cyclists from Seaford Drive to Carrum Downs.

At present, the route currently is comprised of an incomplete sections of sealed Shared Use Path (SUP), as well as footpath and unsealed path.

The upgrades include:  

  • Improving the trail to create a continuous shared use path
  • New signage, line markings and wayfinding signage
  • Relocation of a bus stop on Lyrebird Drive
  • Safety improvements at some of the local street crossings including LED street lighting upgrades.

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 transport modes
  • 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).
