City of Melbourne leads the way in promoting walkability

The City of Melbourne is one of Australia's most progressive councils when it comes to implementing walk-friendly initiatives. The Council works with the local community to provide high quality, clean and safe parks, streetscapes and public spaces.


The key policy document for walking in city is the Transport Strategy 2030 - a 10-year plan to reduce traffic through Melbourne's CBD and to create people-friendly spaces to better support local businesses.
