Cycling Strategy

The Greater Dandenong Cycling Strategy 2017-24 was endorsed by Council on 8 May 2017. It aims to raise the profile of and participation in cycling as a desirable and effective means of both recreation and transport.

As a form of transport, cycling is a low-cost, environmentally sustainable choice that eases traffic congestion and relieves parking pressures. As a way of getting fit cycling is low-impact, suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels, and is an enjoyable social activity in which the whole family can get involved.

As a way of making cycling easier, safer and more accessible Council has already installed more bike parking, upgraded street lighting, and in some cases redesigned community spaces to encourage people to walk and cycle more in their neighbourhoods.
