Bicycle Expenditure Index (BiXE) 2012
15 November 2012. The Rural City of Mildura’s BiXE rating for 2012 is $3.77. This is below the Regional Zone council average for 2012, which is $6.47. This is based upon council spending of $206,000 and population of 54,666.
Relevant bicycle related investment for the 2012/2013 financial year includes but is not necessarily limited to expenditure upon the following projects/programs:
• Flood damage repair works on the shared path from Apex Park to Pump Hill
• Tracks and trails strategy
• Capital works projects: Works to be identified from the adopted strategy
• Bike hub maintenance
• Unsealed shared path maintenance
Additional spending sourced from external grants and funds may apply, but that is outside the scope of BiXE reporting.
The Rural City of Mildura achieved a five-year BiXE average of $4.08. This is below the Regional Zone council five-year average for 2012, which is $5.95.

Jul 03. Council has appointed a consultant to develop a Master Plan and design guidelines for the Port of Mildura precinct that includes the Mildura Marina site, the riverfront and railway sub-precincts.
Bicycle Network Victoria thinks this a wonderful opportunity to create a walking and cycling promenade along the river and should complement the new Mildura bicycle strategy. We provided input to the proposal and will comment on designs once they are available.
