Meetings with local traders and organisation representatives

BACKGROUND TO THE SAFE CYCLING CORRIDOR PILOT

In early 2019, Council engaged with residents on the opportunity for a Safe Cycling Corridor along Inkerman Road in Caulfield North. During this consultation, Council heard a range of views, including the need for more information.

Council listened to this feedback and undertook an exploration of four alternative route options for the corridor, collected in a Safe Cycling Corridor Pilot Corridor Assessment Report. These options included; Dandenong Road, Inkerman Road – Alma Road (two-way), Alma Road eastbound and Inkerman Road westbound (one-way); and Inkerman Road.

Route options were assessed against three critieria

  • Safety for Cyclists
  • Impact on the Neighbourhood
  • Feasibility of Construction

The criteria were further broken down into a range of sub-criteria, with significant data gathered against each, including traffic counts, current use by cyclists, number of crashes recorded along each route, the levels of parking demand and more. You can access the report that presents this information, via the important documents section to the right.

Over September and early October 2019, Council sought input from the community and stakeholders on the route options. Council considered this input, data and research, in December 2019 and made a decision to progress an exploration of Inkerman Road.
