Bike grants pave the way for connected communities
News for the Department of Transport
The McGowan Government is celebrating the start of Bike Week 2019 with a $6.4 million boost to cycling infrastructure, which will help build an extra 55 kilometres of path over the next two years.
The State Government, as part of the annual Western Australian Bike Network Grants scheme, will match funding for 50 local government cycling projects over two years.
Each year, the State Government provides grant funding assistance to local government authorities for the planning, design and construction of bicycle infrastructure. Funding is split across the Perth metropolitan area and regional WA.
