The plans for better bikes path in Narre Warren North are getting closer to realisation.
New and upgraded bike paths are being included in a project to improve Narre Warren Road North.
Major Road Projects Victoria are upgrading the existing shared path on the west side of Narre Warren North Road between Memorial Drive and Heatherton Road.
This rather steep section will be flattened and widened with a slip resistant surface so that it’s more easily accessible for people with mobility challenges.
There will also be a new footpath on the east side of Narre Warren North Road between Memorial Drive and Randle Court to connect with the existing footpath at Memorial Drive and allow pedestrians and horse riders to walk or ride on the east side of the road between Randle Court and Ernst Wanke Road.
As part of the upgrade safety will be improved by installing extra kerbside safety barriers to protect pedestrians and off-road cyclists.
More street lights will also be installed to make it safer to walk and cycle at night.
New traffic lights and pedestrian crossings at the Memorial Drive and Narre Warren North Road intersection, and priority crossings at the Ernst Wanke Road intersection will make it safer to cross the road.
To finalise their designs, MRPV is seeking input from the local community and people who regularly travel along Narre Warren North Road.
