Northern Beaches Council is calling for feedback on their draft bike plan which sets out the directions and actions to help make it easier for more people to ride.
To cater for all kinds of bike riders, The Northern Beaches Bike Plan proposes two separated cycling networks:
- Safe Cycling Network – provides a safe and connected bike riding environment that is separated from motor vehicle traffic and aims to encourage cycling for transport, with a focus on short trips
- Road Cycling Network – Acknowledging the popularity of road cycling, this network identifies major routes that riders already generally use and provides actions to reduce the risk for all road users.
In addition to two separated cycling networks, the plan also outlines four directions which will create a better connected and safer environment for all path and road users. These include:
- Expand, improve and maintain the Safe Cycling Network
- Improve and maintain the Road Cycling Network
- Provide and maintain end-of-trip facilities
- Promote and encourage cycling
The bike plan is a further show of commitment by the Northern Beaches Council to growing cycling participating in their area and the actions outlined are consistent with the NSW Government’s future vision for a 30-minute city.
More than 200 people have already given feedback on the plan. Have your say on the actions of the bike plan before Sunday 5 April and make sure that the Northern Beaches Council have their plans right.
