QLD releases 10,000km cycle network plan covering 98% of population
September 11, 2016
The Queensland Government has published Principal Cycle Network Plans for all the seven regions of Queensland.
The Department for Transport and Main Roads tells us that the plans identify around 10,000 km of network across 163 towns and 48 local government areas, and cover approximately 98.9% of the Queensland population.
Principal Cycle Network Plans reflect a ‘one network’ approach to cycle network planning and show core routes needed to get more people cycling more often. Routes shown are indicative and exist to guide further planning. The plans are intended to support, guide, and inform people involved in the planning, design, and construction of the transport network.
The Queensland Government has worked closely with local governments to develop the Principal Cycle Network Plans to guide the delivery of a connected and cohesive cycle network across Queensland. The plans have been formally endorsed by all local governments covered and also by the Department of Transport and Main Roads.
