A key action of the Western Australia Bicycle Network (WABN) Plan 2014-2031 is to improve planning for cycling in the regions. The Regional 2050 Cycling Strategies seek to identify gaps in existing cycling networks, plan for future growth corridors, and produce strategic and operational plans for identified regional centres and surrounding areas.

There is growing demand for high quality cycling infrastructure in Western Australia's regional centres, with residents expecting a higher level of bicycle connectivity between work, home and other key destinations. In some regions there are also opportunities to improve connectivity between towns.

Cycle-tourism, in its various forms, is increasingly popular and there is significant potential for regional WA to capitalise on this growing industry.

DoT aims to develop aspirational cycling strategies across regional WA, in partnership with local government. Positioned as long-term strategies out to 2050, each document will be accompanied by a short-term implementation program to prioritise the delivery of strategic infrastructure.

  Pilbara 2050 Cycling Strategy

The Department of Transport is developing a Regional 2050 Cycling Strategy for the Pilbara, in collaboration with the City of Karratha, Town of Port Hedland, and the Shires of Ashburton and East Pilbara.

Community feedback was gathered on preliminary networks and themes in October to November 2019. Feedback is now been reviewed and will be used to shape the draft Strategy, due to be released for comment in February 2020.

The final strategy was adopted by the four local governments across the subregion in April-May 2019. You can download the final strategy below.
