Cardinal Road Shared Path Project
Council has develped a concept plan for Cardinal Road beside the Northern Golf Course. Council sought feedback on the plan, with consultation closing on Wednesday 20 December 2017.
Council officers will report back the results of this consultation to Council for consideration in early 2018.
What is proposed?
Council intends to construct a high quality bicycle route connecting Glenroy and Coburg via Pascoe Vale.
Council has completed the Glenroy Road (Blenheim Road to Cardinal Road) section and is proposing to extend the route south along Cardinal Road from Glenroy Road to Rhodes Parade, Glenroy.
Initial community feedback indicated that an on-street bike lane on Cardinal Road would not be supported. Council is now proposing an off-street path on the eastern (golf course side) of the street.
The land between Cardinal Road and the golf course is popular with walkers and includes several mature street trees near Harold Street.
The Cardinal Road Concept Plan (PDF 6Mb) shows how Council intends to provide a high quality bicycle route whilst retaining the street trees and walking path valued by local residents.

Why has Council proposed these changes?
Council wants to see more people riding bikes and to make bike riding a practical alternative to driving for daily trips such as the journey to school or to local shops.
Constructing a high quality bicycle route along Cardinal Road will create a space where people of all ages feel comfortable exercising and provide safer routes to local schools.
