Shared paths, shared responsibilities

Shared paths for cyclist and pedestrians

Many of us have recently found that there's no better way to get in touch with nature and explore our local area than by following one of the many shared paths and trails within Banyule.

A shared path is designed to be used by everyone of all ages and paces, including pedestrians, wheelchair users, joggers, children and adults on scooters, dog walkers and cyclists.

We all have a responsibility to keep our shared paths safe. We have installed a series of decals on the theme of shared responsibility on our key shared paths and trails.

Look out for them on the Main Yarra Trail, Darebin Creek Trail, Plenty River Trail and the Banyule Trail.

Now, more than ever, we need to be mindful of other shared path users when we're out riding, walking or scooting.

If you are a cyclist and are not comfortable with a slower pace, consider taking another route. The Banyule TravelSmart Map features on-road bike lanes as well as shared paths.

You can order a printed pocket-sized map by emailing us your details and we will post it to your home.
