Feedback sought on Ballarat cycling and walking paths

Bike path

Ballarat residents are invited to have their say on plans to build new and upgrade cycling and walking paths across the city. 

The plans include more than 12 kilometres of cycling and walking paths through the CBD, Sturt Street and a route along the Wendouree rail corridor, as well as traffic calming measures and upgrades to key roads, intersections and infrastructure to reduce the risk of crashes in built-up areas.

The city has been identified as one of 30 high-priority areas where pedestrian and cyclist infrastructure improvements are needed to improve safety.

From 2012-2017 there were 34 crashes involving cyclists in the Ballarat CBD, with eight people seriously injured.

A project update will be provided by the end of the year with final designs to be released in early 2018.

An information session will be held on November 15 at the Ballarat Mechanics’ Institute from 3.00pm to 7.00pm, a pop-up shop will be at Shop 1, 315 Sturt Street from November 15 to November 22, or locals can visit VicRoads online consultation hub.
