Harvester path to open for Ride to Work Day

Celebrate the opening of the new Harvester Road Shared User Path on Ride to Work Day – Wednesday 17 October.

Whether you’re cycling or on foot, you’re invited to enjoy breakfast snacks at the opening before exploring the new path (following the ribbon cutting).

The path links Albion and Sunshine stations – filling in another missing gap in the off-road trail between Sydenham and Sunshine.

It includes new pedestrian lights across Harvester Road at Devonshire Road and a raised pedestrian crossing at the Hampshire Road roundabout, linking the path to Sunshine’s CBD.

The project also included extensive landscaping along Harvester Road and re-opening a pedestrian/rider underpass beneath Hampshire Road.

The $1.86 million project was jointly funded by Brimbank Council ($1.21 million) and the Transport Accident Commission and VicRoads ($650,000), through the Victorian Government's $100 million Safer Cyclists and Pedestrians Fund.

The Towards Zero Safer Roads Program is a partnership between the TAC and VicRoads, which is transforming some of Victoria’s most high risk roads into some of the safest through vital safety upgrades.
