Cycling Corridor Project Completed in Melbourne South East Suburbs

Monash City Council worked with DoT to improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians along a strategic cycling corridor from Syndal Railway Station to Clayton Railway Station via Monash University Clayton Campus.

HDS Australia provided assistance to Monash City Council in the form of road safety auditing during the detailed design and post construction stages. We are highly skilled at providing independent road safety advice, and have expertise in considering vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians.

The works involved two sections:

Section one – Syndal Station to Monash University

  • installing a new off-road shared path and sections of dedicated bike path along Forster Road and Gardiner Road from Monash University to Scotchmans Creek Trail
  • installing new traffic lights and bike lanterns on Forster Road, Monash Freeway off ramp at Forster Road, Waverley Road;
  • improving existing traffic lights to include dedicated pedestrian operated signals and bike signals at several locations.

Section two – Monash University to Clayton Railway Station

  • installing on-road bike path facilities including improved crossings and sharrow street markings of a bike with two chevrons above it to indicate that motor vehicles and bicycles are to share the lane on Cobain Street, Princes Highway service road, Lantana Street and Kanooka Grove;
  • installing new traffic lights on Princes Highway near Cobain Street & Carinish Road near Kanooka Grove;
  • improving existing traffic lights with new bike lanterns at the Monash University and Wellington Road bus interchange;
  • installing off-road shared bike path along Browns Road
