Local Area Cycling and Walking Plan

Take the online survey and contribute to the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale's Local Area Cycling and Walking Plan.

Cyclist

We are reviewing our Local Area Cycling and Walking Plan to develop a new works program and action plan for the next 5 years.

The last time we reviewed the plan was in 2009, and since that time we have implemented many of its actions, including many kilometres of new infrastructure.

The revised plan will align with the Department of Transport’s Perth and Peel Long Term Cycle Network Plan 2014-2031, which aims to make Perth and the Peel a place where cycling is safe, connected, and convenient and a widely accepted form of active transport.

The Local Area Cycling and Walking Plan will specifically look at Serpentine Jarrahdale’s:

  • Walking paths
  • Cycling paths

Goals

Some of the goals of the Cycling and Walking plan are to:

  • Define Serpentine Jarrahdale’s long-term cycle and pedestrian network.
  • Recommend infrastructure improvements based on an analysis of the current network and data collection.
  • Align routes with the Department of Transport’s Perth Transport Plan (PTP).
  • Consider end of trip infrastructure – bike parking and repair post.
  • Identify route connection opportunities from the Cycle and Walking Plans of neighbouring local governments.
  • Identify wayfinding signage improvements and behaviour change strategies to encourage the use of the existing and proposed facilities.
  • Consider events that relate to cycling or walking (e.g. mountain bike or racing competitions or community events).

Get involved

During the first phase of consultation, an online survey will identify the communities cycling and walking needs and priorities. The feedback we receive from the survey will help to inform the draft plan.

Next year, during the second phase we will ask for your comments on the draft plan.

Take the survey

Use the link below to take the survey; it will take approximately 5 minutes, and we thank you for your time. The survey will close on Tuesday, 15 January 2019.

The questions have been developed per Australian census and Australian cycling participation research reports, to enable us to compare responses to WA and national averages.
