The Western Metropolitan Regional Trails Strategic Plan ‘West Trails’ seeks to improve the quality and usage of regional trails in Western Metropolitan Melbourne over the next decade.
The key objective of the West Trails project is to determine ways to improve the regional trails network in Western Metropolitan Melbourne by identifying current and future demand, existing trail infrastructure; trail gaps; trail extensions; new trails; required upgrades and signage. Recommendations are also made on the standardisation of trail width; materials; and signage and associated infrastructure / landscaping.
West Trails provides a possible trail management model that can function across municipal boundaries and marketing opportunities. West Trails also seeks to build inter-municipal agreement and cooperation to deliver a connected and consistent regional trail network across Western Metropolitan Melbourne.
