The following was brought to my attention from the Friday afternoon MX magazine. Queensland Transport have released a new document on their website called the South East Queensland Principal Cycle Network Plan. This appears to be an a great step forward in the increasing commitment to cycling all over SEQ. Imagine being able to cycle the 200km from Noosa to the NSW border on bike tracks and bicycle friendly roads…
A description of the plan from the QT website states:
The South East Queensland Principal Cycle Network Plan (SEQ PCNP) guides the development of the cycle network across the region by mapping existing and preferred principal cycle network routes.
This plan supersedes the 2003 Integrated Regional Cycle Network Plan for south east Queensland.
The purpose of the SEQ PCNP is to identify and guide the delivery of a connected and cohesive cycle network within south east Queensland. The plan will be used to inform:
* the planning and construction of both state-controlled and local cycle routes
* the prioritisation and allocation of A$235 million in funding for cycle network planning and infrastructure committed by the SEQ Infrastructure Plan and Program 2007-2026
* assessment of development applications to ensure cycle infrastructure is delivered in a consistent manner.
