Have your say on Mornington Peninsula’s RideSafe Strategy 2020
Posted on 17/08/20
The Mornington Peninsula Shire in Victoria is reviewing its bike strategy. Rail Trails Australia was somewhat involved in 2010 when the Council did their last strategic review.
Even though there are not many rail trails on the Peninsula, they are fragmented. The links between Baxter-Somerville, Moorooduc-Mornington and Balnarring-Merricks must be completed. If they were to be joined, the cycling structure would take enormous leaps forward.
It would be really helpful to promote rail trails in this area for several reasons, including improving community connectivity, reducing motorised vehicular traffic, enhancing population health quality & outcomes, providing economic benefit to the local communities(eg. overnight stays), and enabling development of other activities (eg. retail services and other cycling/walking activities such as MTB park, walking trails).
