Keeping Glen Eira Moving

Consultation has concluded


Greater melbourne is growing, and with it, glen eira is too.

Growth offers opportunities for more vibrant, busy urban places, arts and culture and community life. But it also comes with challenges around the limitations of space, including space on our roads and transport networks.

Between September and November 2019, Council sought feedback on new transport initiatives for Glen Eira, linked to the Integrated Transport Strategy, our plan for keeping Glen Eira moving and for responding to the opportunities and challenges we face. These initiatives included:

A draft Walking and Accessibility Action Plan - A plan for improving the walkability of Glen Eira’s neighbourhoods, busy centres, streets, parks and the links between these locations

A draft Cycling Action Plan - A plan for improving cycling opportunities and connections, making safety improvements and filling in gaps in the cycling network

A draft Parking Policy - A plan proposing an approach to more effectively manage space given to parking and prioritise needs of parking users

Safe Cycling Corridor; exploration of route options - The next stage of Council’s Safe Cycling Corridor project, exploring route options for the pilot

A draft Public Transport Advocacy Plan - A plan setting out the initiatives and projects that Council is focused on advocating for, to improve the level and quality of public transport in Glen Eira
