Joint Bike Plan

In July 2018, the City of South Perth and Town of Victoria Park adopted the state's first Joint Bike Plan. The plan aims to set 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 Bike Plan outlines a five-year action plan for improvements to the cycle network and environment for each local government to further investigate and implement. 13 key infrastructure projects are proposed for delivery:

City of South Perth

  • South Perth Esplanade Project
  • Canning Bridge to Curtin Link
  • Manning Road Project
  • Douglas Avenue Project
  • Thelma Street Investigation
  • Kent Street Project
  • Coode Street Project

Town of Victoria Park

  • Rutland Avenue Project
  • Kent Street Project
  • Albany Highway Investigation
  • Gloucester Street Project
  • Oats Street Project
  • Hayman Road Project

Other recommendations in the plan include partnering with the RAC and Department of Transport on awareness campaigns, continuing to seek funding through the Perth Bicycle Network Grants Program and Federal Government, and improving the collection of bicycle and pedestrian count data on key routes.

Development of the plan included extensive consultation with the community, cycling groups, Curtin University and other key government agencies. People were able to provide feedback on their cycling journey via an online questionnaire, online mapping tools and community workshops.
