Melbourne injects $70 million into cycling network

MELBOURNE'S cycling and pedestrian network will receive a $70 million upgrade as part of the controversial East West Link project.

The project will include three kilometres of concrete paths for cyclists and pedestrians running and two new bridges crossing the Yarra River and the Merri Creek.

Victorian Premier Denis Napthine said the network will allow cyclists to ride from Collingwood to the Mornington Peninsula.

"Victoria is a great bike state. There are more bicycles sold in Melbourne than there are motor vehicles," he said.

"This is a massive investment in improvements for bicycle access in this region, but right across Melbourne." - APN NEWSDESK
