The City of Vincent, the home of the former Lake Monger velodrome is revisiting cycling within the city. The City is in the process of establishing its City of Vincent Bike Network Plan 2013 and has commenced the process by establishing an online survey and is also conducting a public forum on Monday December 3, 2013.
The City of Vincent has contracted AURECON Transport Engineers and Planners to develop the City of Vincent Bike Network Plan 2013. The purpose of the City’s Bike Network Plan is to assesses existing infrastructure and to look at innovative ways of improving and expanding on what is currently in place. It is vital that the Plan improves the safety and connectivity of cycling within Vincent, whilst also providing an opportunity to improve facilities for other modes of active transport and promotes the health and environmental benefits associated with these sustainable modes.
The proposed plant is focused on some very positive short and medium term improvements in the City, as well as highlighting some longer term aims.
