Melbourne cyclists to benefit from improvement works

February 03, 2012

Individuals in rental properties along Footscray Road in Melbourne will soon start to notice improvements to the area's pedestrian and cycle path.

The route stretches from Docklands Drive to Maribyrnong River and will receive $475,000 in funding to help improve safety and efficiency for those using the path.

It is especially popular with those travelling between the CBD and the outer north-western suburbs, providing a vital link for around 1,000 cyclists every morning.

Minister for roads Terry Mulder confirmed that a number of improvements would be made, such as widening and reconstructing parts of the existing path under CityLink.

Furthermore, line markings will be made with pedestrian and bicycle logos and improved lighting and vegetation trimming is to be carried out.

Member for the Northern Metropolitan Region Craig Ondarchie said: "This is a particularly busy area for commuter cyclists during the week and family cyclists on weekends.

"This upgrade will provide improved safety for those riding to the city for work and encourage greater recreational cycling for inner city residents and families."

Last month, the Kings Road interchange in Victoria opened five months ahead of schedule, which should create safer driving conditions for those using the Calder Freeway.
