Cycling infrastructure across City of Stonnington is generally poor, which makes many residents reluctant to cycle. A major survey of cyclists ranked Chapel Street, with its trams, parked cars and narrow thoroughfare, Melbourne’s most dangerous cycling route (link). For Council to meet its commitment to sustainable and active transport (link), as well as being in line with its declaration of a climate emergency (link), the cycling infrastructure in Stonnington needs to improve significantly.

Stonnington Bicycle User Group (link) is calling for:

1. Safe and direct cycling routes to be established on all strategic cycling corridors by 2024. These corridors include Chapel St, Malvern Rd, Tooronga Rd, Glenferrie Rd, Orrong Romanis Park to Como Park. 

2. Stonnington Council to establish baselines and set quantitative targets for number of people on bicycles on key routes by October 2022. Council to track and report performance against these targets.

3. Stonnington Council to commit to spending cycling budget on initiatives where there is evidence showing they will increase the number of people cycling.
