The current peak-hour only bike lanes on Exhibition Street just aren’t safe.

I’m delighted that Melbourne City Council supported my proposal last night to make Exhibition St a fully separated bicycle route, linking the busy Canning and Yarra Trail cycling corridors.

This will cost $2.6m and a lot of lost revenue in on-street parking, but safety comes first.
