Commuter bike paths hit $10m hole

Only $1 million of the $9.16 million allocated to build six major commuter cycleways in Perth has been spent, according to a report in The West Australian newspaper.

Overall, $10 million allocated for the Bicycle Network Plan has not been spent, it said, citing the State Budget papers.

The Glendalough to Balcatta cycleway along the Mitchell Freeway was listed as a major work in the 1996 Perth Bike Network Plan.

Two cycleways are along the Kwinana Freeway – from the Narrows Bridge to Mt Henry Bridge and from Cranford Avenue to South Street.

Two are along the Fremantle rail line – from Shenton Park to Loch Street and from Grant Street to the Beehive Montessori School.

The others are from Burswood to William Street along the Armadale rail line and from Bassendean to Midland along the Midland rail line.
