How can our pedestrian network be improved?

News Article Date:

How could Warrnambool be improved to make it easier for everyone to walk or cycle to school, work, shops or parks?

Council is developing a Principal Pedestrian Network in order to fully understand the walking and cycling issues and opportunities throughout Warrnambool.

As part of the process, an interactive map has been developed where everyone can place markers to indicated existing issues, ideas for improvement or places they think are working well for walkers or cyclists.

“Over the past few months, more people than ever have been walking for exercise, and that’s terrific to see,” Warrnambool Mayor Tony Herbert said.

“What the Principal Pedestrian Network is looking at is what physical infrastructure can we put in place to encourage more people to either walk or ride a bike as a method of transport.

“New footpaths, bike lanes, things to make it easier to cross roads – we want to know what you’d like to see and where you’d like to see it.

“Everyone knows the health and environmental benefits of walking and cycling, and we want to identify and address some of the barriers stopping people from choosing active transport options more often.

“Our Warrnambool 2040 plan outlines a vision where as many people as possible walk or cycle to work or school and we want to do what we can to help make this a reality.

“We’re expecting a lot of suggestions and not all of them will be viable in the short term, but what we’re looking to do is create a plan and identify some priority projects that can make a positive difference to the lives of our residents.”
