The development of this strategy was funded by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC). 

Why a Safer Cycling Strategy?

Council is developing a cycling strategy to support improved safety and connection for commuter and recreational cyclists in the Surf Coast. We want a safe cycling network which is suitable for all ages and abilities, and a strategy which will help to prioritise the most effective infrastructure, education and engagement in the cycling space.

Development of the Surf Coast Safer Cycling Strategy and Action Plan is an action in Council's Road Safety Strategy, and a critical link in Council’s climate emergency response.

Throughout May 2021 we received more than 600 responses to our Safer Cycling survey.  This input supported the development of a draft.

During November and December Council will seek feedback on the draft Strategy & Action Plan.
