The Minister for Transport in Western Australia, Rita Saffioti has announced funding for 74 cycling projects across WA to a value of $7.6 million. As these are matched grants the total value maybe $15.2 million but it is unclear if the matching is dollar for dollar.
In Perth, $3.77 million has been allocated to 23 projects including:
Continuing the Railway Parade Shared Path from William Street to Ladywell Street in the City of Gosnells.
Continuing the Canning Route 2 to connect Cannington to Willetton in the City of Canning.
New protected bicycle lanes along Archer and Mint Streets in the Town of Victoria Park.
Whereas in the regions $3.83 million will be spent on 51 projects including:
The Bandy Creek Road shared path from Fisheries Road to Bandy Creek in the Shire of Esperance.
The Northlink to Muchea shared path connection in the Shire of Chittering.
The Wilson Street shared path project in the Town of Port Hedland.
There is also two further extensions to PSP in progress. The completion of the final section of the Kwinana Freeway PSP between Leach Highway and Cranford Avenue and on the Fremantle Line PSP, the PSP is being extended from Victoria Street Station to North Fremantle Station, leaving the issue of crossing the Swan River unresolved.
