The City is creating two new major cycling routes to make it safer and easier for anyone to ride. We received a $6.3 million grant from the TAC's Safer Pedestrian and Cyclist Fund to create two cycling connections:
- The Western Link connecting central Geelong with Herne Hill via Geelong West.
- The Southern Link to connect central Geelong with Waurn Ponds via Belmont.
Both routes are designed to be used by cyclists of a wide range of ages and abilities to safely ride to destinations like shopping areas and key employment precincts.
The Western Link, and the first stage of the Southern Link (Moorabool, Carr and Gheringhap streets in Geelong) have been completed.
We would like to hear your feedback on the completed sections, to help us identify any further improvements to the links where possible.
Your feedback will also assist us as we progress the second stage of the Southern Link.
The second stage includes a section on High St, Belmont - between Mt Pleasant Road and Roslyn Road.
We are improving amenity for cyclists and pedestrians to encourage active transport with separated bike lanes and new pedestrian crossings. Car parking changes and safer speeds will increase safety for all road users.
Previous engagement shared several options for the creation of the second stage of the Southern Link, with Option 2b chosen as the option to progress, and endorsed by Council in April 2019.
At its March 2022 meeting, Council decided to go out to tender for the construction of the second stage of the Southern Link.
