Lost Delivery Riders Causing Chaos On Toll Roads And Tunnels

Melbourne, Australia | Bicycle and scooter riders – most of them food delivery workers – are getting lost on Melbourne’s busiest freeways and tollway tunnels at a rate of almost three a week, new data shows. A unique, in-depth six-part video content series.

CityLink operator Transurban said there were 57 incidents of riders illegally straying onto its network this year, including through the Burnley and Domain tunnels in Melbourne, Australia.

Many international students supplement their income to fund their studies as Food Delivery Riders, Food Delivery Workers and/or Gig Workers.

Transurban head of safety Liz Waller said most incidents involved food delivery workers, who appeared to be led astray by their delivery or navigation apps.

“Even though there are signs saying cyclists are banned, they just end up in there,” Waller said.

“The issue really is the tunnels are not designed for cyclists or scooters – it’s just not a safe environment.”
