The Office of the Auditor General is currently looking at Cycling and focusing on Safety concerns, traffic and poor cycling infrastructure which are perceived as the most significant barriers preventing uptake and participation in cycling across Australia.
The objective of the audit is to determine whether suitable support and infrastructure are provided to enable cycling to be seen as a viable mode of transport in the Perth metropolitan area. The Audit will cover:
- Is there a comprehensive and well maintained cycling network which covers the main metropolitan transport routes?
- Are suitable actions in place to promote cycling as a safe, convenient and viable mode of transport?
There is a survy under way at the moment which can be completed here: OAG Cycling Survey. The Survey will close on Monday the 20th April 2015 at 4pm.
The Report is due to be tabled in State Parliament in the third quarter of 2015. We look forward to the results.
