  About Green Transport Routes

An aim of the Transport Portfolio is to make WA a place where riding is a safe, connected, convenient and widely-accepted form of transport.

Developing paths that are visually appealing plays an important role in this and, combining natural planting and greenery is one way it can be achieved.

The Green Transport Routes initiative aims to blend path infrastructure with local surroundings to create a more pleasant walking and riding experience by increasing natural landscaping, shade, shelter and amenity.

Green Transport Routes will be designed and maintained with the involvement of local governments and communities to ensure they complement and add to the area's biodiversity and character.
