.Whittlesea Bicycle Users Group has been acknowledged recently by Bicycle Network for successfully lobbying Major Road Projects Victoria to modify their original plans, to incorporate widening of the shoulders on the Barbers Creek bridge on Plenty Road heading towards Whittlesea. Given the increasing volumes of motor vehicle traffic using Plenty Road, this has been a major achievement in making this road safer for cyclists. This has been reflected in the significant increase in the number of cyclists observed using the route in recent weeks.
