GEELONG BIKEPLAN

This report was prepared for the Victorian Government, and the principal work was carried out by the Geelong Regional Commission. The main objective of the pilot study was to determine how the goals of increased bicycle safety and use could be achieved in a major urban area prior to implementation in Melbourne and other Victorian provincial cities. The bikeplan proposes to achieve these goals by the '4e's' program. This involves four action programs with the following objectives 1) engineering - to provide a safer road system and improved riding environment through physical improvements 2) education - to train cyclists to ride more safely 3) enforcement - to improve road behaviour of motor vehicle drivers and cyclists 4) encouragement - to promote awareness of improved facilities, safety, education and enforcement programs and the benefits of cycling. /TRRL/
