Perth Bicycle Network monitoring

The Perth Bicycle Network (PBN) monitoring project assesses the effectiveness of the PBN program through user surveys that have been conducted annually since 1998.

  PBN monitoring significant projects

Perth bicycle network monitoring enables the Department of Transport and Bikewest to monitor the success of new cycling infrastructure and the impact these facilities have on cycling patterns.

Midland Line principal shared path - East Parade to Caledonian Avenue

The section of the Midland Line principal shared path between East Parade to Caledonian Avenue opened in 2003. The success of this route is strongly reflected in the PBN Monitoring reports, and the table below.

An immediate and significant increase in cyclists was reported between 2002 and 2003, with a steady annual rise to 323 cyclists in 2008. This also represents a behavioural shift, with many cyclists choosing the new facility as their preferred route.
