In March this year we gathered feedback and ideas from the community to make improvements to the bicycle network and to encourage cycling as an alternative to private vehicle trips in Bayside.

We have collated and analysed your feedback to produce a draft Bicycle Action Plan. Comments on the draft Bicycle Action Plan closed on 22 May 2019.

The draft Bicycle Action Plan is informed by the recently adopted Integrated Transport Strategy and the 2013 Bicycle Strategy.

It is anticipated the final draft will be presented to Council at the Ordinary Meeting of Council on 25 June 2019.

Actions will be implemented following the endorsement of the Bicycle Action Plan.

Project context

We would love to improve cycling infrastructure and accessibility throughout Bayside but some of your suggestions may not be within the scope of the project or within Council’s jurisdiction.

Major roads such as Nepean Highway, Beach Road, Bay Road, South Road, Balcombe Road, Centre Road, North Road, Hampton Street, Bluff Road, are owned and managed by VicRoads. Council cannot make physical changes to these roads or the speed limits. We still encourage your feedback, we can advocate on behalf of the community.

Council has recently conducted a thorough review of the Bay Trail in 2012. A program of improvements is already underway. You can read more about these projects on the Bay Trail improvements project page. The list of priority Bay Trail improvements is available in the document library.

We are already working on improving a number of cycle facilities across the municipality

  • Park Road bicycle lane/off-road path feasibility and build
  • Carpenter Street on-road bike lane
  • Asling Street on-road bike lane
