Your Views Wanted On New Bicycle Lanes
The City of Melbourne (CoM) has recently constructed bicycle lanes with high kerbs across the city. In addition some tram tracks now have kerbs. The VMC regards these as hazardous to motorcyclists. They remove our escape routes, funnel us into lanes of traffic and remove the safety of filtering. There are plans to further expand these bicycle lanes that are currently on hold.

The VMC will be meeting with the CoM to discuss these towards the end of June. We are interested in riders' experience and opinion of the bicycle lanes that we can present to council.
