Keeping everyone moving in the Inner North

Everyone wants to get where they need to in a safe and timely way.

As Warrnambool grows and gets busier, the challenge will be how to do this.

Inner North Map

What do we want?

Great Streets- which consider and balance the needs of people walking, cycling, driving and taking the bus. Streets which are designed to benefit everyone; older and younger people, people with limited mobility. Getting this right creates opportunities for social interaction, enabling the wider community to foster independence, social connection, safety and comfort for all.

What challenges are we facing?

  • Space is limited- in our streets and for parking
  • More people want to go the same places at the same time
  • People are time poor
  • Our reliance on cars
  • Some people don’t feel safe walking or cycling
  • Access to public transport
