Improving our cycle paths

News Update 3 September 2021
Road Works

In July 2018, the City of South Perth and Town of Victoria Park adopted the state's first Joint Bike Plan. The Plan sets out the long-term vision for a strategic cycling network covering both local government areas in line with the State Government’s Perth and Peel@3.5million Transport Plan.

The Joint Bike Plan outlines a five-year action plan and this year the City will focus on key cycling infrastructure projects on the South Perth Foreshore between Millers Pool and Mindeerup, along sections of the Canning Bridge to Curtin link and Waterford shoreline connection.

Separate pedestrian and cycle paths will be constructed from Mindeerup to Millers Pool. The first stage will be to upgrade the existing shared cycle path later this year. In 2022, we will construct a separate pedestrian footpath and the shared path will become a two-way cycle path.

Three raised safety platforms will also be constructed later this year along the foreshore cycle path across Witcomb Place, Coode Street and Douglas Avenue. Cyclists will have priority at each platform and cars will be required to give way.

The platforms will be highly visible to cyclists and motorists with red asphalt surfacing and green across the top for greater visibility.
