Council’s Cycling Action Plan
Council has a Cycling Action Plan to improve opportunities for cycling around Glen Eira. The plan identifies areas for improvement to help support cycling as a safe and viable transport option for the community.
These include improvements to recognise the role that the cycling network plays in linking people to public transport and walking routes.
The plan includes actions around infrastructure, policy and enforcement and education/behaviour.
