MAKE SYDNEY CYCLE SAFE

Take Action

The New South Wales government has neglected cycling infrastructure and spends just 1% of its annual transport budget on active transport such as cycling and pedestrian infrastructure, compared to the UN recommended 20%.

Add your voice – and help make Sydney cycle safe.

MAKE SYDNEY CYCLE SAFE

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:

1. $250 MILLION CYCLING FUND

At least $250 million a year, to support the construction of a network of cycle ways within metropolitan and major regional communities.

2. SAFE CYCLING INFRASTRUCTURE

Ensure that cycling infrastructure is mandatory in all new road and other transport projects.

3. MOTORIST EDUCATION

A greater focus on education programs, particularly the one metre passing distance on roads with a speed limit of up to 60km/h, and a minimum 1.5 metre buffer on roads with a faster speed limit.
