Springvale Rd Bike/Bus Campaign

Problem 1: 20 Minutes from Canterbury Rd to Nunawading station in peak hour! 20 minutes for 2kms. No wonder people don't bother with the 888 bus. Might as well get off at Canterbury rd and walk the rest of the way. Takes about the same time.

Problem 2: Riding down Springvale rd to get to the bike track along the freeway. Not for the faint hearted!

Solution: Build a right of way lane down the centre of springvale rd that buses and bikes can ride exclusively. Kill two birds with one stone. This north south public transport/bike expressway can act as a feeder network connecting the east west running train lines.
