Toowoomba - Cecil Plains Road, Taylor Street cycleway, business case

This planning project established a long-term vision to provide suitable active transport facilities between Tor and Boundary streets encourage more people to ride more often.

The Toowoomba–Cecil Plains Road (Taylor Street) cycleway business case is part of a statewide strategy to help improve active transport options for Toowoomba residents, visitors and commuters. This planning project has delivered a business case for future active transport infrastructure that is safe, direct and connected to encourage more people to ride more often.

The community provided input about bike riding in Toowoomba and on Taylor Street in late 2021 and this feedback was considered during the planning process. A concept plan was developed and shared with the community during a second round of consultation in late 2022. Feedback from the community helped to develop the long-term vision for a bikeway on Taylor Street.
