Australia Needs More Bike Lanes

89% of Australians support the installation of temporary bike lanes in their local area to support people riding bikes for transport. Overwhelmingly, 90% support the installation of temporary bikes lanes to enable children to ride to school as Coronavirus restrictions ease. (YouGov poll, May 2020). We need Government investment, right now.

 

Let’s keep people riding, let’s keep people safe.

The Amy Gillett Foundation (AGF) believes safe active transport must be an enduring feature of the ‘new normal’ for how Australians move through their local communities, take their kids to school and commute to work, but a massive increase in cycling participation necessitates urgent support to keep people safe.

The AGF recommends at least $300million be allocated from the $3.8billion infrastructure commitment made in late Nov 2019, by the Federal Government and this investment could be made immediately as part of the recent $500million Local Roads and Community Infrastructure announcement last week (22 May 2020).

“There are not many things that 9 out of 10 Australians agree on, but they agree on temporary separated bike lanes. This is ‘shovel-ready’ investment that can keep people riding and keep everyone safe. This is an opportunity for national leadership that will do more for safety for cyclists, active transport options and safety for all road users in the next two months, than the last twenty years combined.”
