VicRoads - Principal Bicycle Network (Polyline) 2013

This dataset presents the principal bicycle network of Victoria as of 2013. The Principal Bicycle Network (PBN) is a network of proposed and existing cycle routes that help people cycle for transport and provide access to major destinations in the Melbourne metropolitan area. Cycling for transport includes riding bicycles to work, to school, shopping, visiting friends, etc.

The PBN is also a 'bicycle infastructure planning tool' to guide State investment in the development of transport bicycle network. The PBN is one of a number of network planning tools in Melbourne (other examples include individual Council networks) Together these networks make up the developing cycle infrastructure of Melbourne.

The PBN makes use of many local roads and off-road paths as well as State arterial roads. New bicycle facilities on the PBN are designed with the principle of increasing separation between cyclists and motorists and giving priority to cyclists at key intersections.

Please note; This data is an archived snapshot taken in March 2013.
