Making the Bay Trail Safer

Project Update

Sandown St to Bay Street, Brighton

Construction has now commenced to duplicate the portion of the Trail between Sandown and Bay Streets, Brighton. It is due to be completed in August 2017. Council consulted with the community on safety upgrades to this portion of the Bay Trail in early 2017. Review the community engagement summary here.

Middle Brighton Baths

The next portion of the Bay Trail to be upgraded is the area around the Middle Brighton Baths. Community consultation will commence later in the year. Click on 'subscribe' on the right of this page for regular updates on the project.


About the Project

The Bay Trail is a shared use path for cyclists and pedestrians which follows the coastline of Port Phillip Bay through the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

The number of pedestrians and cyclists currently using the Bayside portion of the Trail exceeds safe design capacity in several locations. As the number of people using the trail is expected to increase significantly with a growing population, Council plans to address these safety issues and make changes over the next four years using a phased approach.
