Glenferrie Road Cycle Lanes

PROJECT OVERVIEW

As part of the City of Boroondara’s Black Spot program for the 2013-2014 financial year, planners developed an innovative re- design for the bicycle lanes along Glenferrie Road to avoid dangerous dooring incidents involving cyclists. The design as approved by Vicroads Metro South East Region includes a strip of OmniGrip CST Green bicycle lane surface treatment applied alongside the tram line between Barkers and Burwood Rd, Hawthorn. The OmniGrip CST utilises the unique Synthite aggregate and is designed to increase safety for cyclists by keeping parked vehicles as close to the kerb as possible.
