Just my opinion, but that particular bike path highlights most of the things that I don't like about most bike path designs in Melbourne. To access it you have to cross multiple lanes of traffic, then instead of doing what tramtracks in a median strip do it meanders from side to side with trees around the edges. The result is a path which takes you out of any driver awareness zone, then requires you to also give way at each intersection while travelling much further than the direct(straight) road route does. In short it is a path designed more for recreational type use, while being located in a place that few would willingly choose for recreation. I have used the railside path and also the service road on Dandenong road in preference.

Find a legal alternative. Seriously, no one is forcing you to use it.
