Ballarat Integrated Transport Plan – Walking and Pedestrian Network

The Ballarat Integrated Transport Plan outlines actions the City of Ballarat can take to improve the transport systems it owns or manages, including footpaths, bicycle infrastructure and local roads.
It also recommends advocacy actions we can take to request improvements to parts of the transport system the state government owns or manages, including major roads, freeways and highways, bus services and train lines.

The Walking and Pedestrian Network is the second transport mode to be explored as part of Phase One of the Ballarat Integrated Transport Plan.



The City of Ballarat is looking for ideas from the community to make walking safer and more pleasant across the city. The current rates of walking in Ballarat are low, but there is significant scope to improve this situation and feedback from the community will play a significant role in understanding and addressing the barriers to walking.

View the Walking and Pedestrian Network discussion paper and Walking Framework Plan on the right hand side under 'Documents'.



Each discussion paper explores the opportunities and challenges of each mode of transport across Ballarat’s current network, including:

  • Ballarat Cycling Action Plan 2017 (complete)
  • Rail network (open for feedback)
  • Walking and pedestrian network (open for feedback)
  • Public transport network (buses and trams) (coming soon)
  • Roads, streetscapes and emerging vehicle technology (coming soon)
  • Aviation (coming soon)

Following feedback from the community on each of the discussion papers, the City of Ballarat will release the Ballarat Integrated Transport Action Plan.

To give your feedback, take the survey below and drop a pin on the map to highlight areas you enjoy walking or on areas you think needs improving.
