Carrum to Warburton trail, Bayswater to Lilydale link

We're improving the route for pedestrians and cyclists travelling from the bayside suburbs towards Victoria’s north east by constructing a 10.3km shared use path from Bayswater to Lilydale which will provide the missing link in the 90km Carrum-Warburton trail.

Project update – July 2017

As part of the $7.4 million project funded by the Victorian Government, we're currently finalising the design of the Bayswater to Lilydale link. In preparation for the trail, pedestrian operated signals on Dorset Road and Mount Dandenong Road in Croydon have been installed. 

Construction of the trail is expected to be completed by mid 2018.

Completed work:

  • Pedestrian operated signals at Dorset Road and Mount Dandenong Road in Croydon have been installed and are in operation.
  • Pedestrian operated signals at Cambridge Road, Kilsyth have been installed and are in operation.
  • Pedestrian operated signals at Maroondah Highway in Lilydale have been installed and are in operation.
  • The existing footpath along Bayswater Road between Oak Lane and Taralla Creek was widened to a 3 metre wide concrete shared path.

Next stage

The next section of the trail to be constructed is along the Melbourne Water Pipe Track Reserve from Norton Road in Croydon to Hawthory Road in Kilsyth, and a path on the VicRoads proposed Healesville Freeway Reservation to connect with the existing off-road path along Hull Road in Mooroolbark.

Features

  • Upgrade the existing path from Taralla Creek trail beside Bayswater Road to a shared use path.
  • Provide a new path along the Melbourne Water Pipe Track reserve between Norton Road, Croydon and Hawthory Road, Kilsyth.
  • Provide a new path along the Healesville Freeway Reservation between Hawthory Road, Kilsyth and Hull Road, Mooroolbark.
  • Upgrade the existing off-road path along Hull Road, Mooroolbark to Lakeview Drive, Lilydale.
  • Upgrade the existing path between Lilydale Lake and Lilydale Railway Station to connect to the Warburton Rail Trail.
  • Provide pedestrian operated signals where the trail intersects with Dorset Road and Mount Dandenong Road in Croydon, Cambridge Road, Kilsyth and the Maroondah Highway, Lilydale.
  • Provide safety treatments at other intersections with local roads to provide safe crossings for pedestrians and cyclists.

Benefits

  • Provide safer and more direct route for pedestrians and cyclists travelling through the area.
  • Increase travel options for commuters.
  • Reduce the need for cyclists to travel on road from Bayside to Lilydale.
