Ballarat Safer Cycling Connections
Together with the City of Ballarat, we have a suite of projects to improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists through the Ballarat CBD, Sturt Street and suburban areas.
The Transport Accident Commission has allocated $9.3 million to fund the Ballarat Safer Cycling Connections Project as part of its $100 million program to make roads safer for all road users, particularly for pedestrians and cyclists.
This strategic project will link and/or upgrade multiple existing formal and informal bike paths across Ballarat and make cycling a practical, efficient and safer transport option in and around the city.
The project scope includes the upgrade of six high-risk intersections along Sturt Street which would primarily make the precinct safer for motorists and would have flow-on benefits for cyclists and pedestrians using the bike path on the south side of the Sturt Street median.

We carry out regular maintenance on freeways, arterial roads and a limited number of non-arterial roads.
Improvements are road projects that better connect communities, improve road safety and traffic flow.
Although all maintenance and improvements will improve road safety, safety projects address a specific safety concern.
We want to encourage people to be active by building infrastructure that supports alternative modes of transport and travel.
