Overview of action

Action 1.22, Queensland Cycling Action Plan 2017–2019
Status: complete

Update the TMR Cycling Infrastructure Policy to better provide for cycling as part of state transport projects on principal cycle routes.

Achievements

The Department of Transport and Main Roads has reviewed and made improvements to our Cycling Infrastructure Policy to make sure bicycle riding is prioritised in state transport projects.

Established in 2004, the policy requires us to consider and provide for bicycle riders during planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of the state-controlled transport network. The location of the project determines what needs to be provided.

Following an extensive internal consultation process, we released an updated policy in 2017, providedtraining resources and promoted the policy to departmental staff. We also published case studies to highlight how the policy has achieved positive cycling outcomes.

Next steps

We will regularly review, update and monitor the implementation of the Cycling Infrastructure Policy and offer improved resources and training across the department.
