Western Route - West Hobart to Hobart CBD

West Hobart is located on a hill but Goulburn St and Molle St provide the easiest grades to the top while Hill St and Landsdowne Crescent are flat and useful for getting across West Hobart.

Molle St bike lanes

July 2010. A bike lane was installed on Molle St between Macquarie St and Goulburn St as part of a project to improve the road crossing for people travelling between the Hobart Rivulet Track and Collins St. An underutilised traffic lane was removed on Molle St to reduce the crossing distance and the excess space was converted into a bicycle lane. It's a good example of incorporating a bicycle facility as part of another project and eliminates a stressful  section of the cycling route between UTAS and West Hobart.
