Blueprint for future Perth and Peel cycling network starts
News for the Department of Transport
The Perth and Peel plan will feed into the wider planning for the Long-Term Cycle Network for WA, which is already underway. Several regional cycling strategies across the South-West regions have already been released, identifying a range of priority projects.
The development of a consistent network recognises that consensus at local and State Government levels is essential for the success of a truly integrated riding and walking experience.
Improved planning consistency across State and local governments was a key recommendation raised in the recent Parliamentary report, Further Along the Path, which examined how governments can facilitate better outcomes for cycling infrastructure.
