On 3 April 2018, the state government announced a $6 million investment will help create more than 37 kilometres of new cycling path across Western Australia to improve the connection of local communities.
Transport Minister Rita Saffioti has allocated the grants, which will go to 34 local governments over the next two years to further expand metropolitan and regional cycling infrastructure.
The funding is provided through the Perth Bicycle Network and Regional Bicycle Network grants programs, which assist local government authorities to plan, design and build important cycling facilities for their respective communities.
