Kingston is improving local walking and cycling and is calling on the community to let us know which projects they want to see brought to life.

Community members are invited to vote on their favourite projects to help shape our city’s draft Walking and Cycling Plan 2023-2028.  

The first round of community consultation held in 2021 led to 40 potential projects, and we are now seeking your input to develop a priority list for the works.

Kingston Mayor Hadi Saab said Council was keen to promote cycling and walking across the area and were looking to invest in improvements to make it easier for everyone to get active.

“In 2021, we received over 900 pins on a map and more than 200 survey responses from community members who let us know what changes they’d like to see made to improve their local experience with cycling and walking,” Cr Saab said.

“This extensive feedback has created an invaluable database of information about our community’s experience walking and cycling around Kingston.

“It has also been considered against upcoming projects, and adopted masterplans and policies, to determine the shortlisted priority projects.”

Some of the 40 shortlisted projects include:

  • Upgrading the shared user path at Doug Denyer Reserve, between Crown Avenue and Hall Mark Road in Mordialloc, in anticipation of new aquatic and leisure centre.
  • Creating a footpath on the north side of Centre Dandenong Road in Heatherton, between Ross Street and Chifley Drive, to create safe pedestrian access for bus passengers.
  • Installing a pedestrian crossing at Gladesville Boulevard in Patterson Lakes, from the reserve north of Acacia Crescent, to improve safety.
