Hi all,

Here's interesting media release from Luke Donnellans office - is the 
new Safer Cyclists and Pedestrians Fund the return of the long lost 
Victorian Bicycle Budget in another form?

Note that the community consultation sessions are predominantly outside 
inner Melbourne - so please attend either the Melbourne or Box Hill 
sessions if that's where you are.




*Providing A Better Plan For Cycling In Victoria (Tuesday 20 October 
2015) Minister for Roads and Road Safety*


The Andrews Labor Government is updating Victoria’s cycling strategy so 
that it best provides for the future, and wants to hear from cyclists 
and road users.

Minister for Roads and Road Safety Luke Donnellan today opened the Bike 
Futures Conference and announced the beginning of community consultation 
from October to December this year.

The Government is making an unprecedented investment – through the $100 
million for the Safer Cyclists and Pedestrians Fund – in infrastructure 
that keeps cyclists and pedestrians safe on our roads.

The cycling strategy will help to guide the establishment of Active 
Transport Victoria which will be responsible for delivering the 
strategy’s objectives.

It will also incorporate the Government’s commitment to improving safety 
and increasing participation, and will guide future cycling investment.

*Cyclists and other road users will be able to provide feedback by 
completing an online survey at: *


Make a formal submission by email at cycling.strategy at ecodev.vic.gov.au 
or participating in community consultation sessions at key metropolitan 
and regional locations.

Feedback from the consultation will be incorporated into a draft updated 
strategy, which will be made available for comment before being 
finalised for release in mid-2016.
