The new array of red LED on the left and white LED on the right, creates a delineated airport runway style, visually stunning, lighting grid, providing up to 600 meters of visible pathway for riders, even at the darkest hours. Hazards are indicated using amber LED. For safety, the lights are mounted flush with the ground where they absorb more than enough energy, stored in their environmentally friendly super capacitors during daylight, to provide up to 14 hours of continuous lighting. The Western Ring Road Trail is 3km to the north, up Sydney Rd, from the most northerly end of the trail.

The southern end of the Upfield Bike Path connects to the Capital City Trail on the old inner circle railway line reservation which provides access to the Merri Creek Trail at Rushall railway station; and in the other direction it passes near the Royal Melbourne Zoological Gardens before connecting with the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail. Alternatively, at Park Street cyclists can join the Royal Parade bike path and on road bike lane which provides access to University of Melbourne main campus in Parkville.
