Rail Trails Australia Teams up with Vote4Cycling
Posted on 14/08/13
We’ve joined other cycling organisations around Australia in Vote4Cycling. During this federal election, each candidate’s policies on cycling infrastructure, and other public statements will be posted to the site to help voters choose. If you’d like to see more trails developed, encourage your local federal candidates to add their views!
Vote4Cycling has 6 main objectives and Rail Trails Austrlaia will focus on the fourth objective, the development of regional infrastructure for local and tourist use. The full list of objectives is described in further detail in the National Statement which can be found on the Vote4Cycling website.
The Objectives are:
- Stimulate the growth in walking and riding to school
- Upgrade infrastructure on proven urban bicycle corridors
- Develop recreational bicycle and walking paths
- Develop regional infrastructure for local and tourist use
- Leverage Commonwealth infrastructure projects to lift the level of riding
- Foster better road user behaviour.
