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.

  Warren-Blackwood 2050 Cycling Strategy

The Department of Transport has partnered with the South West Development Commission and the shires of Boyup Brook, Bridgetown-Greenbushes, Manjimup and Nannup to produce the draft Warren-Blackwood 2050 Cycling Strategy.

The Warren-Blackwood 2050 Cycling Strategy is the final one of three long-term strategies that have been developed for the South West region. Considered together, these strategies outline an aspirational vision for enhancing cycling experiences across the entire region.

A range of opportunities are outlined for the Warren-Blackwood subregion, from improving the bike friendliness of main streets to making better use of closed and disused rail corridors and enhancing cycling routes along river foreshores, in, around and between towns.

We would like to invite you to have your say on the draft strategy which is available below.

Feedback will be collected between Wednesday 24 October and Wednesday 14 November and can be submitted via My Say Transport using the link below.
