Bikedirect Network Review

The City of Charles Sturt is reviewing its cycling network which will guide future decision making and identify areas for improvements to cycling infrastructure. An improved cycling network will encourage increased uptake by recreational and commuter cyclists, thereby improving community health and fitness and providing environmental benefits due to reduced road congestion.

The cycling network is of major importance to the City of Charles Sturt and we have a target to increase the percentage of cycling trips to 6% by 2031 (Transport Plan 2016-2031).

We want to ensure that the cycling network is direct, safe, attractive, comfortable and convenient, with connections to and from local destinations.

The Bikedirect network has been developed and mapped by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure and includes recommended cycling routes consisting of main roads, bike lanes, local streets and off-road paths in the greater Adelaide region. The City of Charles Sturt has installed on-road bicycle logos and blue advisory cycle signs on every Council-owned road along the Bikedirect network.

We want to hear what you think of the current cycling network and if there are areas that need improvements.

To get involved in the first stage of the review, you can:

Consultation is open until 5pm Monday 15 October 2018.
