    • Bus Your Bike Trial
      Bus Your Bike Trial

      Victoria is conducting its first trial of bike racks on buses, servicing four metropolitan and regional bus routes.
      The one year trial will see bike racks fitted to the front of 15 buses operating on Bendigo Route 16, Routes 510 and 512 in Moreland, and the Cowes to Wonthaggi service.

      The bike racks, each capable of carrying two bikes, will enable passengers to ride to their local bus stop and then catch public transport to continue their journey.

      The trial is also aimed at alleviating congestion on local roads and providing an environmentally friendly transport option for Victorians.

      Riders using the bike racks simply secure their bike using the spring-loaded clamps, before boarding the bus and paying the standard fare.

      At the end of the trial a full assessment of the impact on service including patronage, performance and customer satisfaction will be carried out.

    • Environment Effects Statement (EES) for the new Metro Tunnel
      Environment Effects Statement (EES) for the new Metro Tunnel

      The Melbourne Metro Rail Project is being assessed through an Environment Effects Statement (EES) process. This was a requirement of the Minister for Planning's original 'public works' declaration which was published in an Order on 3 September 2015. This was accompanied by a 'Statement of Reasons'.

      The EES is an integrated assessment of the potential environmental, social, economic and planning impacts of the project, and the approach to managing these impacts. The Melbourne Metro EES is supported by a range of technical studies that identify and assess the potential effects of the project and provide guidance on mitigation measures. They will also inform any subsequent approvals or conditions on the project.

      Melbourne Metro Rail Authority (MMRA) has undertaken a comprehensive public engagement program to seek input from the community and other stakeholders throughout the planning and development of the project.

      The EES technical studies, along with inputs from community and stakeholder engagement, will help shape the detailed alignment, design and construction methodology of Melbourne's new underground rail line.

      We have also prepared a draft Planning Scheme Amendment (PSA). Changes to the Planning Scheme are being recommended to protect the tunnels, stations and associated infrastructure and guide future development in their vicinity.

    • Fishermans Bend Recast Vision
      Fishermans Bend Recast Vision

      Help shape Australia's largest urban renewal - Fishermans Bend

      Fishermans Bend is Australia's largest urban renewal project covering approximately 455 hectares in the heart of Melbourne.

      It will consist of five precincts across two municipalities – the City of Melbourne and the City of Port Phillip – and connect Melbourne CBD to the bay.

      It is expected that by 2050, it will be home to approximately 80,000 residents and provide employment for up to 60,000 people.

      The urban renewal of this area offers a city-shaping opportunity of international significance. To do this, we are asking the people of Melbourne for input and ideas.
