People who spend time in the City of Melbourne area are being asked to give feedback on the council's new bike lanes.
40 kilometres of kerbside protected bike lanes and pedestrian improvements are being made by the council and they want to hear from people who live, work, visit or travel through the area about how the new lanes are working.
You can complete a survey where you select a certain road that has been improved and leave specific comments about how well it is working and if the separation from cars has made riding more comfortable.
An interactive map is also available for you to pinpoint an exact location, leave a comment and upload a photo. As well as bike lane projects, pedestrian changes such as the little streets improvements and Spencer Street footpath extensions can also be commented on.
Council is seeking feedback from not only people who ride in the new bike lanes — pedestrians and other road users are also being quizzed. If you are a fan of the new bike lanes, be sure to show your appreciation to the City of Melbourne.
The new bike lane builds began in 2020 and are being delivered in two stages. Some projects have already been completed, or are very close to being finished, including the new Exhibition Street bike lanes.
|Stage one||Stage two|
|Abbotsford Street||Bourke Street|
|Albert Street||Exhibition Street (stage 2)|
|Canning Street||Flinders Street|
|Exhibition Street (stage 1)||La Trobe Street|
|Peel Street||Nicholson/Spring Street|
|Rathdowne Street||Queens Bridge Street|
|Swanston Street||Royal Parade|
|William Street||Spring Street|
|Footpath extensions on Spencer Street||St Kilda Road|
