Thank you for your feedback. Council is now reviewing your responses which will help update the Move, Connect, Live: Integrated Transport Strategy 2018-28.
The strategy was endorsed in September 2018 through extensive engagement with residents, traders, students, workers, community groups, and industry and government stakeholders.
While most of the 42 actions identified in the strategy are on-track to be progressed (or have already been completed), challenges have been faced in delivering Action 18: 'Deliver a network of dedicated and continuous priority bike lanes to create safer routes for all ages and abilities.'
Of the 11 bicycle corridors identified in the strategy, only 2 have been completed: the Garden City link in Port Melbourne, and Moray Street in South Melbourne. This falls under the target identified of 4 protected bicycle corridors being delivered by 2021/22.
Council is reviewing its approach in order to more effectively deliver improvements along these corridors, making riding more accessible and enjoyable for people of all ages and abilities. Walking and bike riding improvements were rated as the top priority among engagement participants when the strategy was created in 2018.
We thank you for sharing your experiences and perceptions of riding in Port Phillip.
