Imagine cycling along Northbank, past the Aquarium and over Batman Park on a high tech structure 10 metres above ground with no traffic lights, no heavy traffic and in complete safety with great views of the river. Impossible? Not when you clip on a lightweight, high strength elegant structure to the existing rail viaduct running over Banana Alley.
Think Hi Line New York - Think Veloway.
Welcome to the Melbourne Veloway an elevated cycleway separating cyclists from cars, trams, taxis and pedestrians across a section of traffic choked Melbourne.
A visionary project that would carry cyclists high above six busy intersections over Banana Alley and along Northbank in a sweeping arc from Federation Square and Princes Bridge to Docklands and Southern Cross Station in the West.
It would provide a vital link in Melbourne's bicycle networks by linking Cremorne/Richmond in the East to Docklands and Spencer Street in the West with connectors beyond to Maribyrnong and Footscray.
We believe our proposal will propel Melbourne and Victoria forward as a leader in providing technically advanced but practical bike infrastructure. We think the motoring public, taxi drivers and delivery drivers to the CBD will welcome such an initiative.
