Bicycle Network: Metro Routes
Frankston Central Activity Area
The State Government has identified Frankston as on of Melbourne's 7 Central Activity Areas(CAAs). For this area to succeed transport to and from this area will need to be greatly improved. Bikes have an important role to play in this context.
Frankston disconnected from the outside world
Frustratingly short missing link needed to reconnect Frankston
1 August 2011 A few hundred metres of separated bicycle facility is all that is needed for residents and businesses alike to reap the potential health, transport and economic benefits which will soon arrive on their doorstop once the Peninsula Link path is completed and riders take advantage of the exisitng Baxter Rail Path.
The Baxter Rail Path ends at Baxter Street, agonisingly short of the heart of Frankston. Locals could take advantage of a better connection to Frankston Railway station, to the retail precinct and local workplaces without the delays of congested traffic and parking stress currently experienced in the area. Competition would soon become fierce amongst local Barristas if the projected thousands of daily riders arrived in central Frankston looking for their mid-ride coffee and snack.
