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.
Bunbury-Wellington 2050 Cycling Strategy
The Department of Transport has partnered with the South West Development Commission, the City of Bunbury and the Shires of Capel, Collie, Dardanup, Donnybrook-Balingup and Harvey to produce the Bunbury-Wellington 2050 Cycling Strategy.
The strategy sets out a long-term vision to create a comfortable, direct and integrated cycling network for the Bunbury-Wellington subregion. The proposed network, which connects people to activity centres, key attractions and destinations, has been developed to facilitate cycling for transport, recreation and tourism purposes.
The final strategy was adopted by the six local governments across the subregion in late 2018. You can download the final strategy below.

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.
Consultation on the draft Warren-Blackwood 2050 Cycling Strategy closed in November. DoT are currently working with the relevant local governments to develop a prioritised Action Plan across the subregion.
