Footscray Road Veloway
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.
