Fixed distance passing legislation - is it the way to go?
Bicycling Western Australia wants to see a dramatic improvement in road safety outcomes for all bike riders and other road users.
Is the introduction of manditory fixed distance passing legistration the best way to go? There is no evidence to suggest that such laws make it safer for cyclists. Read our rationale and what we think needs to happen HERE.
WA Bicycle Network Plan - document released
29 March 2014 The Minister for Transport, Hon. Dean Nalder MLA, today released the final version of the Western Australian Bicycle Network Plan 2014 - 2031, two years after the draft was issued for public consultation.
The WABN sets the strategic direction for Department of Transport and outlines a detailed schedule of projects in the coming years. BWA will continue to advocate for adequate funding to ensure the projects as outlined in the plan can be delivered as promised. We estimate the Plan needs around $30M - $40M per year over the life of the plan. Read the full plan HERE>>.
Five priorities to get more people cycling
Our Mission is to get More People Cycling More Often and this can only be acheived through a targeted approach to making it safer and easier for people to take up riding a bike and improve the health of the community through cycling.
As part of our strategy to double the number of people cycling by the year 2020 we have identified five priorities that need to be addressed by State and local governments, employers and the entire cycling community. These five priorities will be the focus of our campaigning and advocacy work in 2014 and beyond. MORE>>
