Footscray Road Veloway

Time Out (Melbourne) - - Future Melbourne -

What is it: A 2.5km veloway above Footscray Road as part of 14km of new and up­graded cy­cling paths in Mel­bourne’s west. When will it open? 2022

In April the state gov­ern­ment an­nounced that, as part of the West Gate Tun­nel Project, they would ex­pand Mel­bourne's net­work of bike paths so that it will be pos­si­ble to ride from the CBD to Wer­ribee en­tirely sep­a­rate from cars and trucks. A state-of-the-art neck of this jour­ney is the Footscray Road ‘veloway', which will be­gin at Shep­herd Bridge in Footscray and pass over the main road. There'll be es­cape hatches and stairs in case com­muters need to leave the veloway, and cy­clists will still have the op­tion of us­ing the ex­ist­ing bike path on the road.
