Kingborough Council has released its new Cycling Strategy 2021 – 2030 for public consultation.
Kingborough Councillor and Bicycle Advisory Committee Chair, Amanda Midgley said the strategy looked at the growing cycling needs of Kingborough over the next 10 years.
“This is a draft document that outlines the potential for improving cycling in the community,” Cr Midgley said.
“It identifies a range of infrastructure upgrades and advocacy actions that will make Kingborough a better place to cycle around.
Cr Midgley said the strategy catered for the whole cycling community, in particular trying to attract new cyclists of all ages and abilities.
“The Network Plan looks at the potential for developing networks for all bike riders including cycling tourists as well as occasional bike riders.
“We are a growing municipality in Kingborough, so the more we can improve transport options, the more we can decrease congestion on our streets.
“This strategy outlines projects that Council can use in their pitch for State and Federal funding when it arises.
“I would like to thank the members of Kingborough Bicycle Advisory Committee (KBAC) for their input in getting this strategy to the engagement stage.
“We are all looking forward to the feedback from the community via our engagement page.”
