Have your say on the proposed north-south bike route – Moorabool Street section

If you read the press there has been a small, but very angry, negative response to any proposed bike route through High Street, Belmont.  Despite this, the majority of respondents to the numerous city surveys has been positive.

Now there is a move from businesses in South Geelong to stop the proposed section of the route along Moorabool Street, due to a loss of all-day car parking.

If you ever travel from north to south in Geelong by bike, please have your say.  There are three opportunities to view the proposed route and possible alternatives (all of which add time and hazards for cyclists) – at a marquee set up on Moorabool Street (between the Senior Citizens and GMHBA Stadium) where people can come and ask questions on the following dates:

  • Thursday 14 February 8am – 12noon
  • Saturday 16 February 9am – 1pm
  • Tuesday 19 February 11am – 3pm

The proposed direct route – a 2-way separated bike path on the west side of Moorabool Street from the Barwon Bridge to Carr Street, then separated bike paths each side of Gheringhap Street to the CBD and Deakin Waterfront Campus.
