The release of the WA Bicycle Network Plan (WABNP) in 2014 was important to guide and promote cycling into the future as a viable mode of travel and contribute to the reduction of congestion and reliance on motor vehicles. Following consultation with members, WALGA provided input to the WABNP and continues to be involved with its implementation and strategic direction. WALGA also represents the Local Government sector on the assessment panels for the Perth Bicycle Network and Regional Bicycle Network Grants Programs.
WALGA established the Local Government Cycling Reference Group to provide a mechanism for Local Government Officers involved with the design and delivery of cycling infrastructure to work together on agreed objectives to advance cycling for the Local Government sector.
The objectives of the group are to:
- Identify and make recommendations on strategic and other cycling issues common to the Local Government sector.
- Provide a sector position for Local Government representation on cycling working groups, committees and relevant forums.
