Better bike connections - are alternative routes being considered?

We have looked at alternative routes and assessed them against key criteria including safety, consistency with transport planning, directness, connection to destinations and impacts on the area.

We are yet to identify an alternative route that is viable and will enhance safety.

For High Street, Belmont, our traffic team has looked at Francis Street/Roslyn Road, Thomson Street/Church Street and Belmont Street/Waterloo Street as alternative routes, but each were found to be unsuitable largely due to serious safety concerns at major intersections.

For Moorabool Street, our traffic team has assessed Yarra Street and Kardinia Park/Hopkins Street/Latrobe Boulevard, but these were deemed unsuitable due to reasons including safety concerns, lack of consistency with transport planning and impacts on the area.
