The SCC network supports the needs of commuter trips (to work or education). Which includes important trips, such as stations, shops or schools.

The SCC network links up important destinations. Which includes central Melbourne city, employment and activity centres. This also includes other destinations of metropolitan and regional significance.

SCCs can be on and off road, on municipal and state roads. It's designed to provide a safe, lower-stress cycling for transport experience.

These are five key principles underpin the SCC network:

  1. Destination focused: supports continuous cycling routes. They are linking up significant destinations across suburbs and municipalities
  2. Safe: encourages greater cycling for transport. Through the provision of safer, lower-stress cycle environments.
  3. Direct: provides cyclists with better travel time routes. Often this is the shortest and most direct route.
  4. Connected: SCCs are supported and strengthened. By municipal and local cycling links that provide for end-to-end cycling trips.
  5. Integrated: SCCs are integrated with a broader transport network. Which are located on transport routes where cycling is a priority.

    The SCC network was researched and updated in 2020. Drawing on international best practices, considered the local context and extensive stakeholder input.
