Princes Bridge

Princes Bridge will become safer for all road users following VicRoads approval for the conversion of one vehicle traffic lane in each direction to cycling – an action listed in the City of Melbourne Bicycle Plan

Final, formal Council approval is still needed.

The change will return the current shared footpath to the high volume of pedestrians using Princes Bridge and further strengthen the north south route for cyclists. Princes Bridge has been identified as one of the worst sites for vehcile and cycle crashes with 17 crashes recorded between 2008 to 2010, according to VicRoads data.
