Manningham Council has released its Draft Doncaster Hill Pedestrian and Cycling Plan for public comment.

The purpose of the Plan is to identify future works to be undertaken, ensure stronger links to public transport, and respond to health and social elements of pedestrian and cycling issues and opportunities, and to facilitate the delivery of these works and initiatives through an Action Plan.

Through the Plan, Council aims to reduce the use of private vehicles and improve the overall health and wellbeing of the local community. The review of the Plan aims to identify future works to be undertaken and ensure stronger links to public transport.

A range of actions to be undertaken, including physical works, are identified in the Plan. The works aim to:

  • Improve transport and streetscape infrastructure
  • Promote activities to encourage walking, cycling and public transport use
  • Advocate to State and Federal Government for infrastructure and operational improvements.
