14.2.3 Alternative Routes

Where it is deemed to be unsafe for cyclists to use a freeway, alternative routes providing a similar level of service should be defined and developed off the freeway. These routes may comprise:

  • routes on the surface arterial road network or local street network
  • a bicycle path or shared path within the freeway reservation with either at-grade crossings of the minor road at ramp terminals, or grade separation of the minor road (refer to the Guide to Road Design Part 6A: Pedestrian and Cyclist Paths (Austroads 2009b)).
  • routes through adjacent reservations associated with parkland or watercourses.
