Strategic Cycling Corridors (SCC)

Strategic Cycling Corridors (SCC) are important transport routes for cycling and are a subset of the Principal Bicycle Network (PBN).

The SCC network supports the needs of commuter trips (to work or education) and other important trips, such as to stations, shops or schools.

The SCC network links up important destinations, including central Melbourne city, employment and activity centres, and other destinations of metropolitan and regional significance.

SCCs can be on and off road, on municipal and state roads and are designed to provide a safe, lower-stress cycling for transport experience.

The SCC network is classified as C1 or C2.

C1 are "primary routes" which provide a core network of Strategic Cycling Corridors that connect places of state significance - the central city, Metropolitan Activity Centres (MACs) and National Employment and Innovation Centres (NEICs) within metropolitan Melbourne. In the future, this network may extend into regional cities.

C2 are "main routes" - Strategic Cycling Corridors that provide additional connections to state significant destinations, as well as connections to Major Activity Centres and key railway stations within metropolitan Melbourne. In regional towns, main routes provide the SCC network that connects to destinations of regional importance including activity areas, school and railway stations.

The SCC network was reviewed and updated in 2020, drawing on international best practice, while considering the local context and extensive stakeholder input.
