Queensland Cycle Strategy 2011-2021
Queensland values cycling for the important contribution it makes to the development of a sustainable and effective transport system. Cycling is not just a transport issue. It has significant benefits for health, the environment and tourism, as well as having positive local impacts in connecting communities.
The Queensland Government’s cycling vision is ‘more cycling more often’ on safe, direct and connected routes.
The Queensland Cycle Strategy 2011-2021 sets the direction for cycling to achieve this vision and get more people on bikes for school, work, leisure and shopping trips.
The strategy targets four priority areas for cycling:
- building safe, direct and connected cycle networks
- growing a cycling culture
- creating cycle-friendly communities
- developing a cycle economy.
