One project, Elizabeth Quay,  has a transport goal of:

Elizabeth Quay is one of the most publicly accessible parts of the metropolitan area with connections to bus, train, CAT, ferry, cycle and pedestrian networks. Planning for the project has prioritised public transport, walking and cycling wherever possible.

BTA provided responses to public comment relating to this development:

This weekend we spent a little time pulling together a Google Map showing trouble spots around the Perth CBD which may have an impact on cycling access into the city.  If you notice any errors or if you know of any other trouble spots that we may have missed, let us know and the map will be updated.

Hopefully we will see less of cyclists queuing up to get through these projects, and the long-term goal being better cycling infrastructure.
