WA Bike Network Plan public release (with added comments)

“The Perth Bicycle Network needs to properly connect with the activity centres identified in Directions 2031. It needs to align to schools, shops and train stations.”

“Half of all car trips taken in Perth cover short distances of less than 5km (2). These are trips that could easily be made by bicycle, but the Government needs to make roads safe for cyclists.”
