Federal and State Governments have agreed that provision for cycling should be an integral part of transport and urban planning. Prior to this strategy, the Queensland Government had no formal bicycle strategy and no one point of contact for matters relating to cycling. Until recently, representation on the National Bicycle Strategy Committee has been limited and feedback to local authorities on the National Strategy had not been occurring. This has resulted in national initiatives not getting to a local level.
This document sets out the Implementation Strategy for the October 1995 Bicycle Brisbane Plan and has a particular emphasis on commuting and associated infrastructure and facility requirements.
