Infrastructure Updates

WestCycle is regularly in touch with State Government departments, local governments and the project teams delivering transport infrastructure upgrades in the Perth Metropolitan Area and around Western Australia.

To keep riders in the loop, we regularly share updates on infrastructure upgrades and disruptions to the path network, as well as calls for community input into bike plans, strategies and project designs.

Main Roads WA is the State Government agency responsible for constructing and maintaining much of the shared path network. WestCycle recommends subscribing to their path updates newsletter and checking their full list of projects HERE
