The Federation Trail is being upgraded to transform the trail into a 23km cycling and walking path between Werribee and Brooklyn.
A new off-road path between Fogarty Avenue and Hyde Street in Yarraville will complete the missing link in the trail, connecting it to an upgraded path from Kororoit Creek to Millers Road in Brooklyn.
Other upgrades will include:
- 2 new cycling-friendly pedestrian bridges over the West Gate Freeway at Muir Street, Spotswood and Rosala Avenue, Altona North
- a new connection from the Federation Trail to Hyde Street Reserve and Spotswood Station.
The path will link with a 2.5km elevated veloway along Footscray Road that will bring cyclists into the CBD.
At the other end of the Federation Trail, walking and cycling bridges have been installed over Dohertys Road, Leakes Road and the intersection of Palmers and Sayers roads to avoid traffic and improve safety for both cyclists and pedestrians.
