About the Edgars Creek Trail

The Edgars Creek Trail is identified in both the Northern Trails Strategy (2016) and Whittlesea Bicycle Plan (2015) as a high priority cycling trail along Edgars Creek that, once complete, will run between the M80 Ring Road Trail in Thomastown and Craigieburn Road in Wollert. Council is working to build and maintain the Edgars Creek Trail as a major piece of our walking and cycling path network.

Edgars Creek Trail - Section 2 works

Section 2 of the trail is between Thomas Street and Kingsway Drive in Thomastown. We are in the process of designing this section of the Trail and would love to hear from you as to what you would like to see along this path.

In Thomastown/Lalor there are currently three missing links that this project aims to address:

  • Stage 1 – link to TRAC – 2022/23
  • Stage 2 - German Lane to Robert Street via Mountview Road– 2023/24
  • Stage 3 – Kalara Close to Kingsway Drive – 2024/25
  • Stage 4 - German Lane to Robert Street via Edgars Creek reserve - Future if needed

The works will include rest areas, landscape upgrades and associated infrastructure. You can see more detailed information about each stage below.

Link to TRAC – 2022/23 - a link between the Edgars Creek Trail and the TRAC via Main Street. This will involve modifying the north side of the Main Street bridge to cater for cyclists and providing a link on the west side of the link through the TRAC campus to link with the internal paths in the facility


Stage 2- German Lane to Robert Street – 2023/24 - Utilise Mountview Road as a link including intersection upgrades and road/path improvements to get pedestrians and cyclists safely along this 300m section


Stage 3 – Kalara Close to Kingsway Drive – 2024/25 Construct a 2.5m wide shared path along the east bank of the Edgars Creek from the playground in Kalara Park to Kingsway Drive. Includes a safe crossing of Kingsway Drive


Stage 4 – German Lane to Robert Street via Edgars Creek Road – future if needed – construct a 2.5m shared path along the east bank of the Edgars Creek between German Lane and Robert Street.
