It follows Victoria Avenue through Pearson Park, and will feature upgraded off-road sections, linking with Waterloo Street and Charles Street towards the city centre. Find the latest traffic and travel updates for your area. The majority of the cycle track will be segregated from traffic or traffic-free, making it suitable for new or less experienced cyclists to use, says the council.
