Feedback invited for Barwon Heads Transport and Parking Study

Monday, 4 May 2020

The City of Greater Geelong is seeking community feedback to inform a transport and parking study in Barwon Heads.

We want to learn more from local residents, business owners and regular visitors about key transport, parking and pedestrian issues or opportunities relating to Council-managed roads in Barwon Heads.

Using this feedback, the Barwon Heads Transport and Parking Study will advise a plan that promotes sustainable transport, improves pedestrian and cycling accessibility, enhances safety and reviews parking conditions. 

Engagement opens Monday 4 May and will run for six weeks.

We are open to feedback on any transport related suggestions, some key topics may include:

  • Parking options, including current controls
  • Access to and from school
  • Speed limits
  • Pedestrian and cycling networks, including crossing points
  • Congestion and delay in peak periods
  • Road sealing treatment preferences

The Barwon Heads Transport and Parking Study is a response to community feedback collected during the process of amending the Barwon Heads Structure Plan, which was adopted by Council last year.

The study focuses on local roads managed by Council. We are working closely with Regional Roads Victoria (RRV, formerly VicRoads) and feedback received on arterial roads including Bridge Road, Golf Links Road and Barwon Heads Road will be passed on. 

Following this first round of engagement, options that address the key themes will be developed and released for further community feedback. A final report with findings and recommendations will be published later this year.

To have your say from Monday 4 May, visit the Have Your Say page or call 5272 5272 to share your feedback over the phone or request a hard copy of the survey questions.

Greater Geelong Mayor - Stephanie Asher

We’re listening to the Barwon Heads community who have been very clear that they want clarity around local traffic and parking. We understand there are opportunities for improvements on council-managed roads and assets.  
This study was prompted by previous community feedback, so we look forward to learning more from locals, business owners and regular visitors about how we can create a sustainable traffic plan for the future.
The scope for this first round of engagement is wide-ranging, so I encourage the community to participate and share feedback on specific areas important to you.
