A re-elected Palaszczuk Government will continue to invest in active transport including over $58 million for active transport projects in 20/21 to deliver better and safer infrastructure, and more options for Queenslanders to get to and from work.
We will commit to working with local governments to deliver more active transport options across Queensland.
We know more seperated bike paths are needed and that is what we will deliver. This includes delivering separated bi-directional bikeways in the CBD with Brisbane City Council to provide safe and direct connections for inner-city trips and commuting.
This project was made possible with the Palaszczuk Government’s $200 million COVID Works for Queensland program – part of the $11 billion Economic Recovery Plan. Earlier this year, in response to a huge uptick in bike riding during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to ensure active transport journeys are connected, the Palaszczuk Government established the Active Transport Advisory Committee (ATAC) in partnership with Brisbane City Council.
We have also boosted our jointly-funded programs with local government, across Queensland. We will also continue to ensure active transport is considered as a part of all major transport projects.
