Metro Tunnel is asking for comment on the Draft Domain Precinct Plan.
The Port Phillip Bicycle Users Group supports the proposed design for cycle facilities shown in the draft design.
There are two proposed locations for separated cycle lanes on St Kilda Rd--- either centrally located, or at the edges of the road, Copenhagen style.
There has been no public consultation as yet on these options.
The Bicycle Network supports the centrally located lanes.
However, the Port Phillip BUG would like to see both options fully modelled and go to public consultation. We are concerned that the central option treats the cycle lanes as a freeway, good for commuters from the suburbs accessing the city, but neglects many people who have midblock destinations along the length of the road.
The Domain station proposal shows Copenhagen style lanes, but states that the design is also compatible with centrally located lanes.
While the location of the lanes is still uncertain, it would be prudent to make certain that centrally located lanes are compatible, by providing alternate plans showing the central lanes.
We also request that VicRoads not waste any more time and promptly hold consultations on both options.
