This area is blessed with wide streets, yet numbers of kids riding to school is at an all time low... We have a simple plan to improve the lives of kids and teens while easing traffic headaches for parents.

We're asking for safe bike lanes on Minerva road, Church street and Vines road - these streets are critical to children riding to school in the area. These streets are Principal Bicycle Network (PBN) as designated by Council and Vicroads.

Kickstart this change by signing our petition.

We'll take this petition to Geelong Council and Vicroads - they are both responsible for different parts of these streets.

The plan

We've got proposed street designs developed to hand to Council/Vicroads. With your support we can to get this prioritised. These street concepts (above and below) show you what better streets might look like.

A splash of paint, some low cost line marking, and a bit of effort from local decision makes will turn this area into a better place to live, learn and play.

Church street (No. 2) has great potential to move not only vehicles but also riders, skaters, roller bladers and pedestrians safely.
