Maitland Bike Plan
Cycling is a highly efficient, environmentally friendly form of transport. As with walking, cyclists are improving their health and contributing to an active environment at a human scale.
The Maitland Bike Plan and strategy provides Council with a local level understanding of:
- The existing cycling network across the LGA
- The key issues of concern with regard to existing cycling activities, safety and demographics
- Recommendations of behavioural change strategies to encourage an increase in cycling
- Recommendations of potential improvements to the existing cycle network infrastructure, catering for various user groups
The plan provides detailed discussion on cyclist behaviour, safety standards and lays out preferred bike routes around the city.
