The population is growing rapidly in Melbourne’s west, and our roads are getting more congested.
With more than 50 per cent of trips across Melbourne being less than 5km long, there is great potential to convert many of these trips to active transport – if supported by the required infrastructure.

More people would walk or cycle, as an alternative to driving, with better infrastructure.
Brimbank Council is calling for:
- More funding to build safe, off road cycle paths
- Investment to connect the missing links between key cycle routes within Brimbank
- More bicycle parking at railway stations and town centres.
