Published on 09 September 2021
Avid cyclists, recreational riders and the general public are encouraged to have their say on future cycling infrastructure in and around Port Fairy. The draft Port Fairy Bicycle Implementation Strategy is now available on Council’s website for review and feedback.
Moyne Shire Mayor, Councillor Daniel Meade said the Strategy is part of Council’s aim to create connected and active communities.
“Cycling provides a range of health and social benefits to our communities, and we want to ensure the necessary infrastructure is in place to encourage cycling in the future,” Cr Meade said.
“After working with the Port Fairy Bicycle Users Group, the Port Fairy to Warrnambool Rail Trial Committee and school user groups, Council have drafted a new cycling strategy for Port Fairy, and now invite the wider community to give their feedback.
“The Strategy aims to improve the cycling network, provide connections between destinations around Port Fairy, improve safety, and strengthen our local tourism offering.
“So whether you’re a serious long-distance cyclist, a recreational cyclist, or have children who ride their bikes to school in Port Fairy, check out the strategy and have your say.”
Feedback on the draft Port Fairy Bicycle Implementation Strategy closes 27 September 2021. An online information session which is open to all members of the community, will be held via Zoom on Thursday 16 September at 5.30pm.
