There is a survey on possible developments/upgrades to Scarborough at http://www.scarboroughviews.com.au/ . It gives us a chance to push for better cycling infrastructure at Scarborough. Please consider completing the survey at the link.

Thanks

Put my thoughts in a week back.

A dedicated cycle path would be nice (purely for cyclists).

Hate the current shared path, any other place is fine, but this runs though a very busy shared open space and a play ground - I've actually taken to riding through the carparks now.

Which is what the City of Stirling encourage you to do ...

I only figured that out a few weeks back when I just decided to take the road and saw the bike markings on the road - it's not that obvious IMO.

Only problem with that is the cafes hose all their rubbish including glass and vomit onto the road in the early am :(

Hi,

Comments, have been noted by City of Stirling.

Fast cyclists are encouraged to use the road as the alternative path through grassed play areas is considered unsuitable for speeds above 10kph, the size of the bike markings (in accordance with MRWA guidelines) is considered too small and early morning cleaning practices will be investigated.

Darn right - the natural flow is into the ped zone.

What I'd like to see is my local busses terminate at scarborough (perhaps excluding peak hour) rather than 3 to 5km away (Western 43 - the 81, 82, 83, 85, 86, 92 busses) and return via City Beach. It is insane that they spend ten to fifteen minutes sitting in no-mans land.
