COVID-19: Updates on Department of Transport services

Planning and design guidance

The Department of Transport is currently developing a suite of guidelines to assist practitioners to plan and design for bike riding in Western Australia.

  Planning and designing for bike riding in WA

A suite of guidance is currently under development to provide better information to local governments and other practitioners involved in planning and designing for bike riding in WA.

The first two documents to be released include information about planning and designing shared and separated paths and Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) schemes to support bike riders of all ages and abilities. Other documents in the suite, which are in various stages of development, will include guidance pertaining to safe active streets, protected bike lanes and wayfinding, as well as updated guidance on local bike planning.

Shared and separated paths

This document provides practitioners with guidance surrounding the planning and design of shared and separated paths in Western Australia to enable the safe and efficient movement of bicycle riders of all ages and abilities. It is intended to be a convenient and practical reference guide aimed at practitioners with varying levels of experience.

Cycling guidance for LATM schemes

This document provides practitioners with guidance surrounding the planning and design of bike riding provision in LATM schemes to enable the safe and efficient movement of bicycle riders of all ages and abilities.

  Inter-modal hierarchical prioritisation

The Department is encouraging the application of Inter-Modal Hierarchical Prioritisation (IíM-HiP for short) to active transport infrastructure, such as footpaths, shared paths, and bicycle paths where these intersect with minor roads. See below for more information on IíM-HiP.
