Bike Plan 2021 to 2025

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City commenced the development of a new draft Bike Plan in November 2019.

After an extensive period of investigation, community consultation and review the Draft Bike Plan 2021 - 2025 was made available for public comment. Consultation closed at 4pm on Tuesday 22 December 2020. Thank you to all those who provided feedback

The Draft Bike Plan 2021 - 2025 provides a strategic direction for priority projects over the next five years, to better align the City with State-level cycling strategies and funding programs. The plan does not intend to define specific treatments for each project, as implementing these projects will need further community consultation and detailed design processes. The plan identifies and prioritises the key infrastructure projects for the City, along with other long-term projects to investigate.

How can I be involved?

Consultation closed at 4pm on Tuesday 22 December 2020. Thank you to all those who provided feedback.

What will my feedback be used for?

The City will use your feedback to finalise the plan’s aims and priorities before it is presented to Council for endorsement in early 2021.

Update

The Bike Plan 2021-25 was endorsed by Council at the meeting on Tuesday 23 February 2021.

Thank you to all community members who contributed significantly to the development of the plan.

  • Cyclist and car drivers interactions under the microscope at UWA

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    UWA are currently undertaking research into how cyclists and car drivers share our roads. If you ride a bike or drive a car you would have had experience of this and UWA want to hear from you via their survey.

    About the project

    Car drivers and cyclists often share the roads and their interaction can cause friction between these two parties.

    What exactly contributes to such encounters is the focus of a new study run by researchers at the University of Western Australia. The study investigates some of the factors that may play a role in car drivers’ and cyclists’ contacts on the roads from the perspective of car drivers.

    The research team, lead by Dr Laura Fruhen, is looking for WA drivers who are willing to complete a 15 minute survey.

    Anyone living in WA, holding a driving license, and over the age of 18 can take part. Questions asked in the study concern the participant’s typical behaviour towards cyclists when driving, as well as their thoughts about a number of related issues.

    You can find the survey here: Cycling Survey.
