Statement on Pop-up Bike Lanes

City of Port Phillip
Pop-Up Bike Lanes Statement by Port Phillip Council Mayor Marcus Pearl

Following concerns held by our Council and some community members, we passed a resolution to write to the Department of Transport (DoT) requesting they make changes to pop-up bike lanes.

We received a response from DoT (below) in which the Department committed to several undertakings including:

  • Removing a number of pop-up bike lanes, including two sought in Council’s resolution
  • Reviewing speed cushions and other infrastructure placement.

We thank the DoT for working with us and seeking to address our community’s concerns.

We will be considering the letter and our Council’s response at our 7 September, or a future, Council Meeting.

Response from Department of Transport.
