Long-term cycle network for Perth and Peel
About the Long-Term Cycle Network for Perth and Peel
Western Australia has all the ingredients needed for a great cycling city - warm weather, rolling landscape and outstanding natural beauty.
We already have a good level of existing cycling infrastructure, but we know we can make it even better by developing an integrated network, that connects suburbs with one another.
The Department of Transport (DoT) is working with 33 local government authorities in Perth and Peel to agree on routes that link parks, schools, community facilities and transport services, to make cycling a convenient and viable option.
The aim of this project is to develop an aspirational blueprint to ensure State and local governments work together towards the delivery of one continuous cycling network providing additional transport options, recreational opportunities and support for tourism and commercial activity.
The consultation between State and local government will take approximately two years to complete.
Once the long-term network is agreed, it will guide funding allocated through WA Bicycle Network Grants Program
