Bicycle Network: Regional Routes
Trails & Paths in Regional Centres
This section contains information about campaigns and latest developments on trails and paths in regional centres. These routes are ideal for local recreation and transport.
Ballarat City Centre to University
The path between the city centre and the University in Mt Clear is a fantastic link desperately in need of upgrade and completion. This path can help get students to and from town in a sustainable manner and also benefit the wider community of Ballarat.
Ballarat Western Link Road Path
The Ballarat Western Link Road (BWLR) is approximately 16 kilometres long and will link the Western Freeway to the Midland Highway. and will serve new developments in the Ballarat Employment Zone, airport precinct and residential developments in Ballarat West. A shared path is being constructed along the corridor as part of the project.
Ballarat: Outer Saleyards Rail Trail
This abandoned rail corridor runs from the Wendouree Station south around to the old saleyards approaching Sebastapol. It has the potential to link much of Ballarat to Wendouree Lake and the Skipton Rail Trail plus the proposed South West development precinct
Ballarat: Wendouree Rail Trail
A shared trail in the rail reserve from Ballarat to Wendoree would provide a off-road route between these centres.
Bendigo to Latrobe University Path
A project to link the heart of Bendigo with Latrobe University
Bendigo: McIvor Highway underpass at Back Creek
An underpass is required to provide a safe cycle crossing of this busy barrier and connect with shared path routes. This would also allow a safer connection link from the Bendigo Railway Station to the O'Keefe Rail Trail.
Bendigo: Spring Gully shared path
Continue the Spring Gully shared path along Halvin Street (East/West) to the McIvor Highway

Geelong Ring Road Project
VicRoads is building a Ring Road in Geelong from the north to the south. The project is being announced and built in stages. The first three stages are from the Princes Freeway in Hovell Park(near the speedway) to Deakin University (Princes Highway/Colac Rd). Stage 4 has been announced.
Geelong: High St Belmont
An important transport route for riders. This is the obvious choice for residents to connect to the new Moorabool St bridge Bike Path heading to and from the Geelong CBD
Geelong: Moorabool St Bridge to Barwon River Trail
A link from the Moorabool St Bridge to the Barwon River Trail is needed to capitalise on these two cycling routes.
Maude St, Shepparton
A much needed North-South route is desperately needed in the heart of Shepparton
Mildura - Rail Corridor Path
The rail corridor runs through the heart of Mildura and already has a path along its southern section of town. Linking this to the Train Station and river path would create a great transport and recreation facility for residents and visitors to Mildura
Morwell - Traralgon
This proposal for an off-road shared path will connect Morwell to Traralgon, making travel and recreation between the two towns easier and more enjoyable for riders and walkers.
