3 Executive Summary Vision for cycling Council s vision for cycling in Stonnington is that; Cycling will be widely undertaken in Stonnington, whether for fun, fitness or travel providing health, economic, social and environmental benefits to the community. Participation will be encouraged by facilities, programs and services. Travel throughout Stonnington by bicycle will be easy and safe, supported by a comprehensive network of accessible and convenient paths, laneways and trails that are accompanied by facilities that provide for resting and storing / securing bicycles. It will be particularly easy to access local facilities and gathering places. Cycling is an activity commonly undertaken by people of all ages and levels of ability. People undertake cycling for a range of purposes and benefits, including; sport (eg. various forms of road racing, mountain bike riding), fitness, recreational enjoyment or as a form of transportation (eg. riding to work / school). The majority of cyclists fit within the latter two categories of cyclists (ie. recreational riders and commuters). The Stonnington Cycling Strategy aims to enhance the physical and social environments in order to support more people to cycle, and people to cycle more often. The Strategy addresses all cycling facilities in Stonnington, including trails, shared paths, on road bike lanes and associated infrastructure (such as signage, resting places and parking facilities), as well as programs and services to promote and encourage participation. In particular, the Strategy focuses on ensuring good access to key local destinations, such as shopping, education, recreation and employment locations. Two background documents have informed and support the Strategy. These include, the Cycling Discussion Paper, CDM Research (March 2012), and A New Future for Cycling in Stonnington and Beyond, GHD (April 2013). The strategic framework The strategic framework used for determining Council s priorities for cycling improvements has been informed by the current key issues facing the development of cycling, including a review of current cycling conditions and community trends.

4 Strategic goals In achieving its vision for cycling, Council aims to: Increase participation in cycling to influence positive health and social benefits to the community, and environmental benefits to the City. Influence the development of a safe cycling environment through encouraging greater awareness and tolerance between cyclists, motorists and pedestrians. Create conditions (physical, social and motivational) to overcome individual and social barriers to cycling, to support people make the decision to cycle; Develop, facilitate, promote and deliver initiatives that provide opportunities for people to develop their skills and confidence in cycling; and to Reduce travel by vehicle for short local trips made by residents to help alleviate road congestion and provide environmental benefits to the City. Strategic directions Five strategic directions capture the intent of the Vision and Goals and address the key issues impacting on the development of cycling in Stonnington. They guide the development of actions to improve conditions for cycling in accordance with the strategic framework. The strategies are: Encourage participation in cycling through promoting and marketing cycling broadly, and advocating for the development of cycling in Stonnington. Specifically consider the needs of groups that have lower participation rates (such as women, families, children, older adults, culturally and linguistically diverse communities and lower socio-economic groups) to increase their participation. Facilitate the development of safe, accessible, legible, functional and appropriate cycling options and initiatives to encourage participation in cycling and a culture of sharing space. Continue to develop and improve the cycling network and associated facilities to provide access to local places of congregation and prioritising the VicRoads designated Priority Bicycle Corridors. Support people at their destinations through enhancing the end-of-trip experience. Champion the creation of a thriving and diverse local cycling culture in Stonnington. Strategic approach The strategic framework is based on the physical, social, individual and political factors that combine to influence a person s decision to cycle. These elements are described, and the inter-relationship between them is illustrated following: December 2013 Page ii

5 Factors that are specific to us as individuals (eg. our self-confidence in our ability to ride a bicycle) Factors specific to societies (eg. the influence of friends, family and colleagues) The built and natural environment (eg. bicycle routes and end-of-trip facilities) The influence of wider government policy and regulation (eg. enforcement of road rules) Source: A New Future for Cycling in Stonnington and Beyond, GHD This Strategy provides the blueprint to guide Council in achieving the Vision for cycling, as shaped by the Strategic goals and Strategic directions, and influenced by the four behavioural elements. The basis of the Strategy is to provide the conditions that encourage residents to cycle as an everyday or normalised activity. As such, short local trips based around key places of congregation are the focus, including; activity centres, education, green open space and rail stations. This is not to the exclusion of broader travel by bicycle to destinations outside of Stonnington, which will complement the successful functionality of the internal network. Cycling in Stonnington The existing designated cycling network in Stonnington covers approximately 22 kilometres of offroad trails, and 29 kilometres of on-road bicycle lanes (not including kilometres of other streets also used by cyclists not formally designated as cycling routes) providing a range of opportunities to cycle within and through the City.

7 Cycling in Stonnington is provided via a range of avenues by various stakeholders, including: Shared trails (off-road); paths and trails shared between cyclists and pedestrians in parks and open spaces. The main off-road trails in Stonnington are; Capital City Trail and Main Yarra Trail (running along the Yarra River), the Gardiner s Creek Trail (running along Gardiner s Creek and providing a critical connection to the Capital City Trail), and the Scotchman s Creek Trail. This infrastructure is primarily the responsibility of Council (where Council is owner of the land). On-road bike lanes; exclusive bike lanes, clearway bike lanes, shared car parking and bicycle lanes, and bicycle headstart (storage) boxes. Council and VicRoads are the key organisations responsible for infrastructure on roads, with VicRoads having responsibility for many of the major roads in Stonnington; Ancillary infrastructure; such as signage (regulatory, warning, guidance), parking facilities and storage boxes. Responsibility for these items rests with the authority responsible for the road infrastructure which will be either Council or VicRoads; Programs and services, such as riding tuition, cycling adventures and events, maps and information. Council is one of a number of service providers, including community groups and community organisations; and Promotion and information this is provided by Council, other agencies, community groups and businesses. The City of Stonnington is one of a few key stakeholders with a role in planning, providing, managing and promoting cycling opportunities in Stonnington. There are a number of other partners relevant to the provision of cycling opportunities. These include; the Stonnington community, schools and community groups; State government; neighbouring councils; Bicycle Network Victoria, and other working groups and networks (such as the Road Safety Action Group of inner Melbourne councils), and the Inner Melbourne Action Plan (IMAP). Council works with all of these partners and stakeholders (as relevant) when improving opportunities for cycling. Within Council, cycling is a cross-departmental responsibility requiring multiple departments to work together to ensure that cycling initiatives are planned for and developed in a coordinated way. Overall coordination of Council s activities in cycling provision is undertaken by the Sustainable Transport Planner. As the custodian of many roads in Stonnington, the State Government (through VicRoads) is responsible for the development of cycling infrastructure on these roads. VicRoads categorises cycling pathways according to a hierarchy of roads, and has a program for implementing cycling infrastructure improvements. Council advocates to VicRoads regarding cycling infrastructure priorities and applies for infrastructure projects to be funded, but the priority and implementation of these projects is ultimately at the discretion of VicRoads and its funding parameters. Key issues relevant to cycling in Stonnington Key issues identified through the background research that have informed the directions of the Strategy include: Participation - There are many benefits to be gained through building on the increasing rates of cycling participation for individuals and the community. To grow participation further, cycling facilities, programs and services need to be safe, appealing, easy to access and December 2013 Page v

8 appropriately targeted. There is an opportunity to focus on particular target groups to encourage participation in cycling, especially those that have lower levels of participation (such as females, who have a significantly lower participation rate than males). Physical layout and accessibility - There are benefits and constraints for cycling associated with the urban form of Stonnington. In particular, the medium to high density style of residential living and close proximity of key services is a characteristic that supports travel by bicycle; the layout of the road network in Stonnington provides for permeable travel north-south and eastwest, and the large amounts of linear open space provide opportunities for corridors that support bicycle travel, make the City easy to access by bike. However the narrowness of roads, and heavy traffic, makes on-road provision for cycling challenging. Regardless of these challenges, opportunities to facilitate local bicycle travel need to be pursued. Optimising existing infrastructure - There is already an extensive network of cycling trails (on and off road). This system should be regarded as the foundation for the cycling system, and projects that address the connections, missing links, maintenance and other infrastructure needs of these facilities should be prioritised. Shared use of space - Safety is a paramount consideration in the planning, design, construction and management of cycling infrastructure, given the high levels of use of parks and roads by vehicles, trams, pedestrians, as well as cyclists. There is a need to influence a culture of sharing, so as to create as safe an environment as possible for all users, and attempt to reduce the potential for conflict. Partnerships - As Council is not the only stakeholder responsible for cycling provision, it must work in partnership with other key stakeholders (such as the community, Metro Trains, Police, traders), but particularly VicRoads. This requires alignment of priorities and funding for projects which are often led by VicRoads. There is an opportunity to work towards strengthening this partnership by Council taking a more active role in the foundation planning of VicRoads projects to establish a sound business case to advocate strongly for improvement works to be funded. Resourcing Council s resourcing of cycling has supported the delivery of a range of infrastructural and behavioural initiatives. The distribution of responsibility for cycling across multiple work areas at Council requires inter-departmental coordination to ensure integration and consistency in the delivery of cycling initiatives. A cross-departmental working group has been convened to ensure this coordination is achieved to optimise outcomes. The opportunity exists for the working group to continue to work together on implementation of the Cycling Strategy actions. The Stonnington cycling network towards the future The following map illustrates the aspirational cycling network in the City of Stonnington, which brings the vision and goals to life. The envisioned network addresses all desired links and connections within a five year lifespan. December 2013 Page vi

10 Summary of key actions A range of infrastructural, behavioural, promotional and leadership actions are proposed to comprehensively enact the Strategy s vision and goals and achieve the aspirational cycle network. Annual implementation plans will be prepared based on the priorities outlined in the five year action plan complete with a more accurate estimation of cost. The key actions to be achieved in the five years from 2013 to 2018 are summarised following: Planning Conduct an audit of all way-finding and signage for the on and off road trails with the aim of updating / installing signage as relevant and removing outdated signs. Conduct an audit of the cycling network to review for improvement works that address functionality, safety and compliance needs. Pursue amendments to the Stonnington Planning Scheme to incorporate a greater provision of bicycle parking and end-of-trip facilities in private developments. Encourage MetroTrains to explore the need and opportunity for the installation of long-stay bicycle parking facilities at all rail stations in Stonnington. Undertake an audit of all City of Stonnington workplaces for infrastructure to support travel by bicycle for work and to/from work (such as end-of-trip facilities including parking, change and shower facilities, and storage). Prepare design guidelines for informing the development of off-road cycling infrastructure designed and built by Council including a standard treatment for constricted or reduced width areas on shared paths. Leadership actions Work with the development proposal for Chadstone Shopping Centre to improve cycling access into / out of, around (eg. Castlebar Road and Capon Street) and through the Shopping Centre site, including provision of bicycle parking facilities. Continue to advocate for the resolution of the development of an off-road north-south shared trail between the Cremorne rail bridge / Yarra River and Windsor station (generally following the Sandringham rail corridor) to present an alternative route to Chapel Street. Investigate the potential to address gaps and enhance connections in the off-road cycling network through strategies such as land acquisition and utilisation of rail corridors, as opportunities are identified and needs arise, and advocate for these outcomes as desired. Behavioural actions Produce user-friendly information promoting the Stonnington cycling network, including local places of interest and destinations to residents and visitors, through material such as maps or other technologically based methods such as a smart phone application. Develop, promote and deliver programs to encourage participation in cycling with the aim of increasing confidence in cycling (including the Cycle With Confidence program and Ride 2 School program). Investigate developing a Sustainable Travel Plan for all City of Stonnington staff to encourage staff to travel for work via sustainable transport methods (including cycling) - in conjunction with the implementation of the Sustainability Strategy. December 2013 Page viii

11 Investigate the establishment of a bicycle pool for staff to use for work trips including the availability of loan equipment and plan out safe and convenient cycling routes between regular work site destinations. Investigate providing parking for cyclists at all appropriate Council events. Use imagery of bicyclists that are friendly and encouraging and have regard to safety (eg. demonstrate use of safety equipment, helmets, reflective gear etc) in relevant communications on cycling. Infrastructural actions Liaise with VicRoads (as appropriate) regarding the potential for new or upgraded bicycle routes and other infrastructure to support on-road trails (such as headstart boxes etc), including; Chapel Street, Toorak Road, Malvern Road, High Street, Orrong Road, Glenferrie Road, Waverley Road, along Dandenong Road. Investigate opportunities to provide and enhance safe cycling options on select Councilresponsible roads including Grange Road, Quentin Road, Hornby Street, Chadstone Road, Kooyong Road, Ivanhoe Grove and Brixton Rise. Undertake improvements to off-road shared trails (such as line marking, solar lighting, path widening, signage) to enhance functionality, and complete connections at the following locations; High Street underpass; beside Warrigal Road, Warrigal Road to East Malvern station; Gardiner s Creek trail at Glen Iris Park and Dunlop pavilion, and realignment of the trail at Sir Zelman Cowen Reserve including a new bridge crossing; Sir Zelman Cowen Reserve shared trail; Tooronga shared trail; Main Yarra Trail; and linking facilities within open spaces such as TH King pavilion. Design and construct a shared trail connecting the East Malvern station to Hughesdale station (in the City of Glen Eira) from Scotchman s Creek to Dandenong Road in consultation with VicRoads. Install bicycle parking facilities, with a particular focus on activity centres, leisure and recreation facilities and other key activity / congregation points. Trial the installation of a bicycle corral facility in a key activity centre (to be determined) in partnership with the trader association and businesses; review and consider implementing at other locations. The indicative costs for implementation of the action plan by year follow: TOTAL (CoS and VicRoads) Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 $9,835,400 $930,000 $3,057,600 $1,703,200 $2,147,000 $1,997,600 TOTAL (CoS only) Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 $4,470,400 $680,000 $777,600 $957,600 $957,600 $1,097,600 The action plan and associated costs include initiatives that are the responsibility of Council and VicRoads. A strong partnership between Council and VicRoads is key to the successful implementation of the Strategy and a significantly enhanced cycling network: Funding for the Council-responsible projects will be directed towards; maintaining and enhancing the existing cycling trail network for which Council is responsible (off-road and some on-road); scoping of some projects on non-council owned land (ie. VicRoads roads) to assist December 2013 Page ix

12 with the development of business cases to inform applications for funding; implementing behavioural initiatives; and promotional and educational activities. External funding for the VicRoads-responsible projects is required for the development of onroad cycle lane treatments on VicRoads responsible roads. These projects (and funding of) are critical to the successful achievement of the aspired Stonnington cycling network. Monitoring implementation of the Strategy For monitoring Council s impact on increasing participation in cycling, various surveys have been implemented in the past which establish participation rates and set a benchmark for measuring change. These surveys (or a combination of) should be implemented annually to continue to measure change, including; the Sustainable Transport Survey, the Stonnington Active Travel Survey (implemented through the Ride 2 School program), Super Tuesday counts, the Staff Sustainable Transport (cycling) Survey, automatic / manual counters, data from the Australian Census of Population and Housing on transport modes and destination for the journey to work. A cross departmental group of Council Officers with a role in planning and providing for cycling has been formed to ensure that cycling projects are appropriately coordinated. This group will continue to meet periodically to plan budgets, coordinate capital works projects and program annual implementation plans. The Stonnington Cycling Reference Group was formed in This Group comprises residents, Councillors and Council Officers with the aim of working together to consider cycling issues and opportunities. The Group will provide a sounding board for implementation of the Cycling Strategy, including preparation of the annual implementation plans, revision of priorities and review of issues and outcomes. A status report providing an update on progress of implementation of the Strategy will be prepared annually and presented to the Stonnington Cycling Reference Group and Council. December 2013 Page x

13 1 Introduction This document presents the vision, strategic directions and actions for implementation to improve opportunities for cycling in Stonnington over the next five years (2013 to 2018). The Stonnington Cycling Strategy aims to... enhance the physical and social environments to support people to cycle. The strategic framework addresses all cycling facilities, including paths, roads and cycle ways and associated infrastructure (such as signage, resting places and parking facilities), as well as programs and services to promote and encourage participation. In particular, the Strategy focuses on ensuring good access to key local destinations in Stonnington (such as shopping, education, recreation and employment locations) and cycling safety. The objectives driving development of the Strategy are: To address all elements of cycling; including on and off-road cycling infrastructure and facilities, programs and services. To review the on and off-road cycling network for connectedness, functionality, quality and ancillary infrastructure. To review relevant literature to ensure the Cycling Strategy is correctly set within the current policy context and reflects relevant Council priorities and commitments. To review participation patterns of the community with respect to cycling behaviour, and, and the impact on cycling participation of population trends and forecasts. To define the stakeholders with a role in cycling provision and promotion in Stonnington, and particularly to outline the role of Council. To apply a behaviour change philosophy to the Cycling Strategy as the foundation informing the strategic approach taken to cycling provision and development. To consider environmental sustainability as a desired outcome of Council s approach to the development of opportunities for cycling. To incorporate safety as a major objective for all cycling improvement initiatives. To develop a strategic framework for encouraging more Stonnington residents to cycle, and those who already cycle to do so more often. To prepare a detailed five-year action plan designed to achieve implementation of the strategic intent of the Strategy, with an associated estimation of cost. This Strategy coincides with the release of the Victorian Government s strategic direction for cycling through the Cycling Into the Future strategy, which aims to make it easier for more people to cycle, and make it safer for people who already ride. The strategic framework and directions discussed in this report have been developed based on detailed analysis and investigation into the range of factors that impact on cycling. In particular, two background documents have been prepared which have informed and support this report. These include: Cycling Discussion Paper, CDM Research, March 2012 this study provides a detailed assessment of the existing on and off road cycling networks, cites case studies of methods used by other land managers for providing for safe and accessible cycling. A New Future for Cycling in Stonnington and Beyond, GHD, April 2013 this report combines all previous research to provide a strategically focussed appraisal of conditions for cycling and opportunities for improving the cycling system, facilities and infrastructure. This report has been formative in the development of this Cycling Strategy December 2013 Page 1

14 These studies have undertaken detailed reviews of relevant literature, involved consultation with Council staff with a role in planning, developing and managing on and off road cycling infrastructure, and reviewed data pertaining to cycling participation. Various methods for providing for safe cycling have been considered and new initiatives in cycling infrastructure are also explored in the reports. This document draws on the key issues and strategic intent of these documents to provide a succinct, achievable five-year strategic direction and development program, as presented in this report. 1.1 The approach The Strategy is based on an holistic approach which considers the physical, social, individual and political factors that combine to influence a person s decision to cycle. Accordingly, the Strategy seeks to address each of these elements within the Stonnington context, taking account of local demographic characteristics, land-use (including existing cycling infrastructure and networks), and cultural factors. The elements are described following, and the inter-relationship between these elements is illustrated in Figure 1: Intrapersonal factors these are factors which are specific to us as individuals (eg. our self confidence in our ability to ride a bicycle). Social factors these factors are specific to societies (eg. the influence of friends, family and colleagues). Policy and regulation refers to the influence of wider government policy and regulation (eg. enforcement of road rules). Physical environment this is both the built and natural environment (eg. bicycle routes and end-of-trip facilities). FIGURE 1.

15 1.2 Vision for cycling in Stonnington Council s vision for cycling in Stonnington is that; Cycling will be widely undertaken in Stonnington, whether for fun, fitness or travel providing health, economic, social and environmental benefits to the community. Participation will be encouraged by facilities, programs and services. Travel throughout Stonnington by bicycle will be easy and safe, supported by a comprehensive network of accessible and convenient paths, laneways and trails that are accompanied by facilities that provide for resting and storing / securing bicycles. It will be particularly easy to access local facilities and gathering places. This Strategy sets out the road map to guide Council in working towards achieving its vision. In particular, the Strategic Goals and Strategic Directions discussed in Section 6 define how the vision mixes with the four behavioural elements discussed previously to arrive at recommendations for action.

19 2.1 Providers of cycling in Stonnington The City of Stonnington is one of a few key stakeholders with a role in planning, providing, managing and promoting cycling opportunities in Stonnington. The roles of Council and other providers are discussed in this Section. The City of Stonnington Cycling is a cross-departmental responsibility of Council, with a number of work areas contributing to planning, developing, providing and managing cycling facilities and services for Council-responsible infrastructure. These work areas and their roles include: Department Transport and Parking Public Spaces and Capital Works Physical Operations Strategic Planning Leisure and Recreation Communications and Community Planning Roles Planning, scoping and coordination of improvements on on-road and offroad cycling infrastructure and investigation of community requests relating to usage of on-road and off-road paths Liaison with VicRoads regarding cycle ways on Declared Roads Auditing and monitoring of cycling infrastructure Coordination and management of the Stonnington Cycling Reference Group Design of public spaces Design and construction of public open space and off-road shared trails Maintenance of on-road and off-road cycling infrastructure Future planning of land uses, including activity centres and identification of opportunities to acquire land Advocate to and educate the community on cycling behaviour and cycling opportunities in Stonnington Provision of programs and services that encourage participation in cycling Promotion of cycling Responsible for the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan Community safety Overall coordination of Council s activities in cycling provision is undertaken by the Sustainable Transport Planner. Other key providers There are a number of other partners relevant to the provision of cycling opportunities. These include; the Stonnington community, schools and community groups; State government; neighbouring councils; Bicycle Network Victoria, and other working groups and networks (such as the Road Safety Action Group of inner Melbourne councils). Council works with all of these partners and stakeholders (as relevant) when improving opportunities for cycling. The City of Stonnington s participation and role in the Inner Melbourne Action Plan (IMAP) also provides a platform for working more collaboratively with adjoining inner Melbourne municipalities to improve cycling trail connections that provide for seamless travel by bike across Melbourne. As owner of public land (reserves and road ways) and the custodian of many roads, the State Government (through VicRoads) is also a major provider of cycling infrastructure, along with Council. December 2013 Page 7

20 VicRoads works to a hierarchy of on-road cycling trails to guide prioritisation of cycling connections and infrastructure works. The VicRoads hierarchy involves: Principal Bicycle Network (PBN) - is a network of bicycle routes providing access to major destinations in the Melbourne metropolitan area. These locations include; Alexandra Avenue, Toorak Road, Malvern Road, High Street, Dandenong Road, Wattletree Road, Waverley Road, Punt Road, Chapel Street, Williams Road, Orrong Road, Kooyong Road, Glenferrie Road, Tooronga Road, Burke Road, Darling Road, Belgrave Road, Chadstone Road, Warrigal Road, Grange Road. Bicycle Priority Routes (BPRs) - subsets of the PBN, based on the VicRoads hierarchy ofo roads and road use (the SmartRoads Road User Hierarchy). These locations include; Alexandra Avenue, Toorak Road, Malvern Road, High Street, Wattletree Road, Waverley Road, Chapel Street, Orrong Road, Kooyong Road, Glenferrie Road, Tooronga Road, Darling Road, Belgrave Road, Chadstone Road, Grange Road. Critical Route Corridors (CRCs) - the highest level of bicycle route, based on the BPRs. Tooronga Road is the nominated CRC in Stonnington. The following diagram (Figure 3) maps the VicRoads-responsible on-road cycle path network in Stonnington. The map shows the expanse of this network which incorporates most major north-south and east-west roadways across the municipality. The map also differentiates between those on-road cycleways that are existing, and those which form part of the proposed network but are not yet in existence (the dotted lines). December 2013 Page 8
