A network of cycling routes are to be introduced in to Melbourne’s CBD to make the busiest areas more accessible.

A network of cycling routes are to be created in Melbourne’s central business district (CBD) which will make it easier for people to cycle between some of the most popular parts of the city.

The council has announced it will be introducing 15km of bike lanes along some of the busiest streets in the city, the Herald Sun reported.

La Trobe Street will become the main road for cyclists under the new plans, while St Kilda’s Road will have separate bike lanes installed.

Further extensions will be made to areas including North Wharf and Elizabeth Street.

This new project represents the largest investment in cycling seen in the city for over a decade.

“We can’t wait for Port Phillip or Yarra. What we have to do is develop a coherent bicycle network from the centre of Melbourne and then that needs to be connected to,” said Melbourne lord mayor Robert Doyle.

People without bikes who want to try travelling on two wheels can hire bikes as part of the bike share scheme, with return stations located around the city.
