Val and Faith are in the studio again after having been blown there on their respective bikes by the blustery spring winds. 

After sharing our bike moments we take a look at some news including plans in Perth to introduce more streets with 30kph speed limits after increases of 300% in cycling participation was counted on streets with the lower limit. The volume of cars in residential streets was also lowered. Moreland Council and VicRoads are currently working to trial 30kph streets at the moment while Yarra ran a trial not too long ago. 

The Northern Trails Strategy 2022 builds on the 2016 strategy and is currently open for consultation. As a collaborative project between Moreland, Darebin, Banyule, Hume, Whittlesea, and Nillumbik Councils, Northern Trails 2022 aims to ensure integration of planning, advocacy and development efforts, while making recommendations for trail infrastructure, management, marketing and improvement projects. 

You can find detailed information about the project here as well as a survey to get your feedback in prioritising projects from a ten project short list. Make sure you have your say in getting some of these unfunded cross-council projects to the next stage!
