Building better bike connections

We’re creating two new major cycling routes to make it safer and easier for everyone to ride.

The City 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.


Community consultation on the design of High Street, Belmont  

Thank you to everyone who completed the survey on the potential design options for High Street, Belmont (between Mt Pleasant Road and Roslyn Road).

We received approximately 2,600 responses to survey, which is the largest response ever for a survey of this kind.

The data - including all of the comments submitted - will be analysed over the coming weeks, then a report will be developed and released publicly. The feedback received via the survey will be used to inform the preferred design, which will be presented to council to make a decision on later in the year.
