The Walking and Cycling Plan seeks to enhance walking and cycling as a main mode of transport through the creation of a safer and more accessible network for all.
The Plan has the following focus areas:
- Improve walking and cycling infrastructure
- Promote and encourage walking and cycling
- Provide information, invest in data and monitoring
We are currently seeking feedback on a new proposed 'on road' bike way along Elder Rd and Mersey Rd, running from Birkenhead to Osborne, and locations for bike hoops and walking and cycling refuges across PAE. Follow the links below to provide your ideas and feedback.
The final Walking and Cycling Plan was endorsed by Council at their meeting on 9 August 2022. The endorsed Walking and Cycling Plan will guide investment in infrastructure improvements within PAE.
We are currently implementing the following Walking and Cycling Projects for the 22/23 Financial year:
The project will define cycling routes throughout the Port Centre. This initiative leverages off the ‘Outer Harbour Greenway’ as a major cycling corridor, by providing alternatives to cyclists and better link them to services and destinations within the Port.
City Wide Secondary Bike Paths
This project will promote ‘neighbourhood cycling routes’ for the community and increase awareness for motorists to ‘share the road’ on these neighbourhood connections. This will be achieved by formalising neighbourhood connections with appropriate signage and line marking along with other supporting infrastructure improvements, such as path linkages and kerb ramps.
City Wide Cycle Parking Facilities
The project will provide end of trip facilities, namely cycle parking, at key locations and community buildings across the City.
