Warwick principal cycle network plan, business case

This project is part of a state-wide strategy to help improve bicycle riding facilities and networks in Warwick to increase active transport.

The Southern Downs Regional Council and the department have investigated how to create a safe, direct and connected bicycle route that allows more people to ride more often.

The department is planning bicycle riding facilities at 2 intersections on the network. These include:

  • Site 1 - Cunningham Highway (Wood Street) and Dragon Street intersection.
  • Site 2 - New England Highway (Wallace Street) and Pratten Street intersection.

Council is planning bicycle riding facilities for a single connected route along Dragon, Pratten and Easey streets, specifically:

  • Dragon Street from Victoria to Pratten streets
  • Pratten Street from Dragon to Easey streets
  • Easey Street from Pratten to Wood streets.

Although there is no funding for construction, community consultation has helped to better understand the challenges and opportunities for bicycle riders. Feedback from the community is assisting the development of a long-term vision for the bicycle route while the department and council look for opportunities to progress delivery.
