WA Bicycle Network Plan

The WA Bicycle Network (WABN) Plan provides a blueprint to make Western Australia a place where riding is a safe, connected, convenient and widely accepted form of transport.

About the Western Australian Bicycle Network Plan

The Western Australian Bicycle Network Plan 2014-2031 (WABN Plan) has a clear vision: to make WA a place where bike riding is a safe, connected, convenient and widely accepted form of transport. The plan includes initiatives covering a range of activities to provide a safe and sustainable bike riding network which ties in with key activity and attraction areas.

First developed in 2014, an updated version of the WABN Plan was released in 2017 (see document below) to incorporate significant developments such as the establishment of the long-term cycle network, as well as smaller changes within some of the existing programs.

We are currently working on Western Australia’s first overarching active travel strategy which recognises the need to increase multiple active travel modes, not just bike riding. Visit the WA Active Travel Strategy webpage to find out more.

WABN Grants Program

The WABN Grants Program is one of the key actions of the WABN Plan which aims to provide a funding source to local governments to help create infrastructure and initiatives to encourage people of all ages and abilities to ride more often. Application rounds for the grants program generally run on an annual basis.

For more information about upcoming and previous grant rounds and to access guidance resources visit the WABN Grants Program webpage.
