The proposed route of the CBD to Carindale Bikeway is along Robinson Road, into Bourke Street and then into Wembley Park between two houses, across Bridgewater Creek through the recent N4C rehabilitation planting beside the dog off-leash area to the easement through the former timber yard site to Bennetts Road. This route brings cyclists into conflict with the vehicle movements associated with the Metropolitan District Netball Association. On Saturdays, match days, practice sessions there are a high numbers of cars crossing the bike route at an intersection. This conflict should be avoided. An alternative entrance into Wembley Park to the south avoids this bike safety hazard and removes the need to go through the rehabilitation site.

We request that Council modify the route of the CBD to Carindale Bikeway to the alternative route, to the south.
