Cycling rates have decreased while injuries are skyrocketing, and the government currently spends just 1% of its annual transport budget on active transport such as cycling and pedestrian infrastructure, compared to the UN recommended 20%.
The New South Wales government has neglected cycling infrastructure.
This isn’t good enough, and we’re committed to making sure this changes. Join us in calling on the government for:
At least $250 million a year, to support the construction of a network of cycle ways within metropolitan and major regional communities
Ensure that cycling infrastructure is mandatory in all new road and other transport projects
A greater focus on education programs, particularly the one metre passing distance on roads with a speed limit of up to 60 km/, and a minimum 1.5 metre buffer on roads with a faster speed limit
