About the Study
The concept of a Traralgon-Morwell shared pathway was first proposed about 12 years ago by local Rotary clubs. At the time, a short study was undertaken but the project did not gain the momentum required to deliver the pathway. In 2006, the Latrobe City Bicycle Plan consultation found strong support for a cycle link between Morwell and Traralgon was still evident. A shared pathway is also strongly supported by Bicycle Victoria, Latrobe Valley Business Tourism Association, Latrobe Road Safe and the Traralgon and Morwell Peddallers (TRAMPs).
This study is designed to assess the feasibility of developing a sustainable shared pathway between Morwell and Traralgon, providing specific details on the community benefits of any proposed development, route options, detailed design, and an implementation plan.
The aim of the study is to present a design option for a shared pathway between Traralgon and Morwell that accommodates technical, economic and environmental requirements whilst presenting an outcome that is acceptable and provides maximum benefit for the local community. In this sense, the aim is to develop a sustainable design option for a proposed shared pathway.
You are the expert!
Crucial to the project is the involvement of every community member with an idea or opinion on the project. The first part of the project involves gathering information on where the pathway might best be located, who might use it and where it might lead to in both Traralgon and Morwell. That makes you the expert. You know the local landscape and the places you want to get to as well as anyone, so please help us out and impart your expert knowledge so we can make the study as informed as possible!
