Christine Couzens and Laurinda Gardiner launch the Little Malop Street Bridge.

Little Malop Street Bridge opens for cyclists, pedestrians

Thursday, 15 June 2017 10:37 AM

The new Little Malop Street Bridge is now open for use by the community. The bridge is an important connection between Geelong West and central Geelong, improving safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

The bridge is 3 metres wider than the previous one, making it easier and safer for bike riders and walkers to pass one another.

Final touches will be made over the coming days including artworks and seating. The City of Greater Geelong delivered and funded $1.1 million for the project as part of its partnership with the Revitalising Central Geelong Action Plan.

Christine Couzens, Member for Geelong
Through the Revitalising Central Geelong Action Plan, the Victorian Government wants to see more people living and working in central Geelong. This bridge is an important entryway to the CBD and improves access and liveability for the community.

By the end of 2017, people can ride over the new Little Malop St Bridge, through the revitalised laneways and alongside the spectacular Green Spine Botanic Walk in Malop Street. What an exciting transformation for central Geelong.

Laurinda Gardner, Administrator, City of Greater Geelong
We're pleased to open this bridge for use by the community.

The bridge improves accessibility into the CBD and encourages active transport, an important element for a healthy community and liveable city. The trees, landscaping, bike racks and other improvements also make it an attractive route into central Geelong.
