The City of Fremantle’s Bike Plan 2019–24 establishes the aspirational long-term bike network for Fremantle, and sets the City’s priorities for bike infrastructure projects, programs and promotional activities.
The plan was informed by a community engagement process undertaken in 2018 in which residents were asked to share their experiences of cycling around Fremantle and identify areas where bike facilities were good or needed improvement.
The plan confirms the four primary State Government routes that connect major destinations such as the Fremantle and Perth city centres and four secondary routes connecting activity centres like shopping areas, schools and sporting facilities as priorities.
It also outlines planned infrastructure upgrades including more green bike lanes along on Parry Street and William Street, improvements to on-road bikes lanes on Marine Terrace and an upgrade to the intersection of Queen Victoria Street and Parry Street. Delivery of these projects will be subject to grant and funding availability.
In addition to implementing the actions of the Bike Plan, the City also participates in initiatives like the Department of Transport’s ‘Your Move’ program and Bike Week to encourage more cycling.
