The Western Australian Bicycle Network Plan 2014-2031 (WABN) was publicly released by Transport Minister Dean Nalder on 29 March 2014.
The WABN Plan aims to make WA a place where cycling is safe, connected, and convenient and a widely accepted form of transport.
It caters for the expansion of Western Australia’s cycling facilities and growing cycling requirements over the next two decades and will provide a blueprint for metropolitan and regional cycling facilities to encourage and support bicycle trips.
This new plan incorporates a review of its predecessor, the 1996 Perth Bicycle Network Plan and has been developed as a result of feedback received during the review of the draft Western Australian Bicycle Network Plan.
Key recommendations of the WABN Plan include:
- Expansion of the PSP network
- 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
- Formulation of a WABN Implementation Reference Group
- Biennial review of the Plan
