South East Queensland Principal Cycle Network Plan

Overview:

The South East Queensland Principal Cycle Network Plan guides the development of the cycle network across the region by mapping existing and preferred principal cycle network routes. This plan replaces the 2003 Integrated Regional Cycle Network Plan for south east Queensland.

Location:

South east region

Benefits:
  • Cycling 10km each way to work would save 1500kg of greenhouse gas emissions each year.
  • Bicycles offer door-to-door service and are often quicker than cars over short distances up to 5km.
  • For every car trip replaced with a bike ride, the community saves 60c per km.
  • Up to 20 bicycles can be stored in the space required for 1 car.
Regions:
Metropolitan Region

Project info

A photo of cyclists crossing the Goodwill Bridge in BrisbaneThe purpose of the principal cycle network plan is to identify and guide the delivery of a connected and cohesive cycle network within south east Queensland. The plan will be used to inform:

  • the planning and construction of cycle routes controlled by state and local councils
  • the prioritisation and allocation of $556 million in funding over 20 years for cycle network planning and infrastructure committed by the South East Queensland Infrastructure Plan and Program 2008-2026
  • assessment of development applications to ensure cycle infrastructure is delivered in a consistent manner.

A collaborative approach has been taken in the development of this plan with a series of workshops held with representatives from local government authorities, relevant special interest groups, the Department of Transport and Main Roads and other state government agencies.

The plan supports the prioritisation and allocation of $556 million in funding for cycle network planning and infrastructure committed by the South East Queensland Infrastructure Plan and Program.
