The trail network and the PBN are currently missing sections and some routes are not continuous, making cycling unsafe and inconvenient at times.
There is an underlying demand for continuous safe bicycle facilities that provide links between destinations. Completing the missing links on the trail network and the PBN will encourage cycling throughout the ETC region.
Positioning cycling as a sustainable mode of transport is integral to improving the health of our communities, improving safety, minimising congestion and achieving environmental beneﬁts.
Completing the links in the shared path network will provide cyclists with a safer off-road avenue to commute to the CBD and other centres in the region.
