  About the Regional 2050 Cycling Strategies

A key action of the Western Australia Bicycle Network (WABN) Plan 2014-2031 is to improve planning for cycling in the regions. Specifically 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.

This project 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.
