Motorcycle trial extends to Eastern Freeway

Jul 24, 2019 | News

Last month we wrote to Roads Minister Jaala Pulford asking that the successful motorcycles in bus lanes trial be extended to bus lanes on the Eastern Freeway.

We are very pleased to hear  that this trial will start today and will include sections of the Eastern Freeway and extend into Victoria Parade.

Included sections are:

  • emergency lane and bus lane along the Eastern Freeway (citybound side of the freeway) between the Chandler Highway and Hoddle Street
  • bus lane on Victoria Parade (citybound) between Hoddle Street and Nicholson Street
  • Hoddle Street and Victoria Parade intersection

The initial trial of motorcycles in southbound bus lanes on Hoddle Street became  permanent last month.

Motorcycles in bus lane trial

We’re assessing how motorcyclists use our roads and how to get the most out of our road network. We’ll be extending the motorcycles in bus lane trial to parts of the Eastern Freeway and Victoria Parade so we can gain a better understanding of the benefits to riders.
