Bush cycleways in running for $15 million grants

Cycle paths, trails and other cycling infrastructure in regional areas can apply for up to $15 million grants in Round Two of the Regional Development Australia Fund grants.

A new trail between Gawler and Tanunda in the Barossa region of South Australia was built under a grant in Round One.

Federal Regional Development and Local Government Minister Simon Crean announced Round Two earlier this month and said $200 million had been allocated for it.

Non-profit must have a minimum annual income of $1.5 million.

Projects in capital cities must show it will benefit the broader region or other parts of regional Australia.

Local Regional Development Australia committees will have a stronger role under changes to the program.
