Our thoughts on the City Cycle Plan 2029
10 August 2012 – Bicycling Western Australia is pleased to see a number of improvements including the proposal to install bike lanes along Barrack Street and the ability for low speed riding through the Hay and Murray Street malls. The impact of the Elizabeth Quay remains a concern and the City needs to look at ways to improve the east-west links across the city.
The feedback period has now closed and you can read our full submission here.
