Mackay Isaac Whitsunday Principal Cycle Network. The routes shown are indicative and exist to guide further planning that will determine the precise routes and design of cycle facilities.

Overview of action

Action 1.2, Queensland Cycling Action Plan 2017–2019
Status: being finalised

Review and publish Priority Route Maps every 2 years to support the Principal Cycle Network Plans and reflect current delivery priorities.


Priority Route Maps are helping guide the delivery of a connected and cohesive cycle network across Queensland.

Produced as addendums to the Principal Cycle Network Plans, the maps currently cover 48 local government areas to assist in prioritising cycling infrastructure projects.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads is working with local governments to update existing Priority Route Maps to respond to changes in demand and priority.

We are also developing new Priority Route Maps for Barcaldine, Blackall-Tambo, Longreach, Winton and Boulia local government areas.

Next steps

We will publish updated and new Priority Route Maps in 2020.
