The Wood-Weller Street Bicycle Route is a key north-south route in the Unley area that links the City of Mitcham to the south at Cross Road, Charles Walk / Glen Osmond Trail to the east and Mike Turtur Bikeway to the north. The bicycle route has been delivered in stages, with the Wood Street section being delivered in 2017 and the Weller Street section between Mitchell and Albert Street being delivered in July 2020.
The bicycle route has been designed to be a low speed (< 40 km/h) and low trafficked (< 1,500 vehicles per day (vpd) ) environment to support a mixed traffic arrangement where less confident bike riders would feel comfortable to ride. This has been achieved through the installation of slow points including a raised hump, bicycle bypass and landscaped islands, as well as pedestrian and bicycle improvements at intersections.
Funding has been allocated in the 2021/22 Annual Business Plan & Budget to deliver the section of bicycle route along Weller Street (north of Albert Street) and Simpson Parade. State Government funding has also been received through the State Bicycle Fund to deliver this project. Construction is planned to commence in early 2022.
