Expert cycling advice from the Netherlands

An Australian delegation has taken part in a cycling tour of the Netherlands, to learn from one of the world’s best cycling systems.

An Australian delegation has taken part in a cycling tour of the Netherlands, to learn from one of the world’s best cycling systems.

The tour was arranged by the Cycling Promotion Fund and the Netherlands Government through the Dutch Embassy in Sydney.  

The delegation consisted of a range of transport professionals and advocates, including the Department of Transport’s Network Planning Director Craig Wooldridge.

Mr Wooldridge said the tour was a perfect opportunity for the State Government to learn from the Netherland’s passion to drive innovation in active transport in the short, medium and long term. 

“The tour consisted of a mix of presentations by Dutch experts from regional and local government, the private sector and advocacy groups along with practical cycling and walking experiences.

“While the Netherlands approach to urban and transport planning is vastly different to Australia’s, due to very high urban densities, the advice I have been given is that there are some key learnings that could be explored.

“These include looking at greater separation for cyclists on high volume arterial roads, creating lower speed environments on local roads and different options for end of trip facilities and bike education in schools,” Mr Wooldridge said.

Dutch planning and design experts will visit Australia in March next year to run a one day workshop with representatives from state and local government, the private sector, advocacy groups and interstate experts.

Mr Wooldridge said these new opportunities tie in with the key initiatives within the Western Australian Bicycle Network Plan (WABN) 2014-2031 which has allocated $39.95 million to cycling infrastructure from 2014/15 to 2017/18.

A report summarising the trip and key learnings can be found the 2014 Netherlands cycling study tour page.

Mandurah skippers urged to navigate ocean entrance with care

An unusual build-up of sand at the Mandurah Ocean Entrance has seen the Department of Transport (DoT) urgently install additional navigation aids to help skippers safety transit the area.

An unusual build-up of sand at the Mandurah Ocean Entrance has seen the Department of Transport (DoT) urgently install additional navigation aids to help skippers safety transit the area.

DoT General Manager of Marine Safety Ray Buchholz said a recent hydrographical survey of the entrance channel revealed a build-up of sand at the end of the western groyne and a sand bar mid-channel between the two groynes.

To assist navigation in the area DoT has installed four new starboard markers north of the western groyne and relocated an existing port marker within the main channel,” Mr Buchholz said.

DoT will conduct a further hydrographical survey in early 2015 to monitor the movement of the sand and make necessary adjustments to the navigation aids if required.

Mr Buchholz said skippers navigating the area should also access the updated Temporary Notice to Mariners for Mandurah Ocean Entrance before heading out on the water.

DoT undertakes an annual sand bypassing program to ensure the Mandurah Ocean Entrance is maintained.

This year’s sand bypassing program was recently completed and dealt with a larger than usual influx of sand with a total bypass volume of approximately 150,000 m³ compared with the usual volume of 100,000 m³.
