Refreshed Bicycle Network (WABN) Grants Program

The Western Australian Bicycle Network (WABN) Grants Program has undergone a refresh to better deliver on the State Government's priorities aligned to the long-term cycle network for Perth, Peel and across our regions.

The program will continue to be delivered in two streams across metropolitan Perth and regional WA.

The metropolitan stream of the program will now have a specific focus on projects within two kilometres of new METRONET stations, to help fill significant gaps to key public transport sites.

The regional stream will continue to prioritise connectivity to town centres and schools, as well as cycle tourism or recreational opportunities.

METRONET is a core priority of State Government, and the updates to the WABN Grants Program will ensure people can safely and more easily walk, wheel and ride to new stations, activity centres and other key destinations as part of their everyday journeys and experiences.

The revised grants program will also consider a four-year program period, rather than the current two. This will help facilitate higher value projects as well as provide local government greater certainty, ensuring quality planning, design and construction that will enhance safety and accessibility of critical active transport routes.

Local Governments will be invited to apply for WABN grant funding in July 2024, for projects commencing from 2024-25.

NB: WALGA's 2024/25 State Budget Submission called for funding to accelerate the progress of the State Government’s Long-Term Cycle Network. This proposed an external grant program separate from the WABN that focused solely on project implementation to help Local Governments leverage their limited funding resources to construct bicycle infrastructure.
