We’re creating two new major cycling routes to make it safer and easier for everyone to ride.
We received a $4.7 million grant from the TAC's Safer Pedestrian and Cyclist Fund to create two cycling connections:
- The southern link will connect Central Geelong with Waurn Ponds via Belmont.
- The western link will connect Central Geelong with Herne Hill via Geelong West.
Adopting best practice from around the world, the cycling routes will include a combination of protected bike lanes (where bikes are separated from cars) and a shared use system (where cars and bikes share the road).
Both routes are designed to be used by cyclists of a wide range of ages and abilities to safely ride to destinations like shopping areas and key employment precincts.
