Frankston City Council will need to give a huge boost to expenditure in order to meet the proposals in its new bike strategy.
16 November, 2009. Frankston City Council used the BikeScope consultation tool to assist with this new 5 year bike strategy.
The strategy identifies the following key priorities for development
Nepean Highway – Provision of paths along both sides of the road for the entire length (within Frankston City)
Seaford Road / Ballarto Road - Provision of paths along both sides of the road for the entire length
Dandenong Road / Dandenong Frankston Road – Provision of paths along both sides of the road for the entire length (within Frankston City)
Cranbourne Road / Cranbourne Frankston Road – Completion of a key missing link and connections into Frankston CAD.
Bay Trail (including linking existing Seaford Wetlands and Frankston - Baxter Trails) – a complete off road link connecting with Kingston to the north, through Frankston CAD and foreshore and with Mornington Peninsula to the south
Dandenong-Frankston Trail – Provision of facilities from Frankston CAD along Dandenong Road / Dandenong Frankston Road (within Frankston City)
Skye Trail – Provides a path between Kananook Creek and McClelland Dr along Overport Rd and Skye Rd
Cranbourne Frankston Trail – Completion of missing links between Frankston CAD and Casey along Cranbourne Road / Cranbourne Frankston Road.
Completion of all recommendations in the strategy amounts to spending of $40m, which would equate to around $8m per year.
According to research undertaken by Bicycle Network Victoria for the annual BiXE report, Frankston City Council has a 3 year average per resident bike spend of just $1.72. This is well below the recommended minimum spend of $5 per resident.
