Better bike connections

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.

Community invited to comment on Better Bike Connections plans for Moorabool, Carr and Gheringhap streets

Following on from community consultation early last year, the community now has another opportunity to provide comments on the Better Bike Connections project plans for Moorabool, Carr and Gheringhap streets.

Anyone can provide comments on the designs until 4 March 2019.

The designs will be taken to council in April.

Drop-in sessions

We will have a booth set up on Moorabool Street (between the Senior Citizens Centre and GMHBA Stadium) where anyone can come and ask questions on:

  • Thursday 14 February 8am – 12noon
  • Saturday 16 February 9am – 1pm
  • Tuesday 19 February 11am – 3pm

Community survey results - High Street Belmont design

Thank you to everyone who completed our survey on the design of High Street, Belmont, (between Mt Pleasant and Roslyn Roads) as part of the Better Bike Connections project.

We received 2,611 survey responses, which is the highest number of responses we’ve received to a survey of this kind.

You can view the engagement summary and full engagement report.

We are now reviewing the engagement results and will prepare a report, that makes a recommendation on an option, to be presented to Council for a decision in early 2019.
