Safe Bike Network

In Prahran, Melbourne and in cities across the world, more people are choosing to cycle in response to COVID-19.

Right now, we have an opportunity to transform our transport system by creating more space for people riding their bike.

The construction of the Safe Bike Network would include over 300km of separated bike lanes and paths and create around 5,000 jobs in engineering, construction and manufacturing.

The Safe Bike Network would see Melbourne become a world-class city for cycling – like Paris, Copenhagen, and Amsterdam.

Bike Superhighway #1

The centrepiece of the network would be a 20km Bike Superhighway #1 running from Coburg to Elsternwick including the key routes of St Kilda Road, Sydney Road, Royal Parade and Flemington Road.

The Superhighway would be fast-tracked with temporary infrastructure to create more space for cycling in response to COVID-19.

A safe, separated bike network for Prahran and Melbourne would:

👷 Create jobs in engineering, construction and manufacturing

🌱 Boost urban renewal and cut carbon emissions

🚗 Reduce congestion while also reducing air pollution

🚲 Improve people’s health, getting us fit and active!
