Draft Western Australia Bicycle Network (WABN) Plan

The draft plan was launched by the Minister for Transport on Tuesday, 13 March 2012. This new plan incorporates a review of its predecessor, the 1996 Perth Bicycle Network Plan, while also taking in regional cycling.

The Plan maps the way ahead to service WA's expanding cycling needs, particularly those of riders commuting to work, for the next ten years.

Key recommendations of the WABN Plan include:

  • Formulation of a WABN Implementation Reference Group
  • Biennial review of the Plan
  • Expansion of the PSP network
  • Funding increases to the PBN and RBN Grants programs
  • A feasibility study for an end-of-trip facility in the CBD
  • A connections to schools program
  • A connections to rail/major bus stations program
  • Review of traffic management on local roads
  • Review of the local bicycle routes
  • Development of an online journey planner
  • Planning for cycling facilities in larger regional cities

 

The draft WABN Plan will be open for public consultation until 17 June 2012.

A copy of the plan can be found on the Department of Transport website.
