What would it cost?
Clean State proposes 5% of the State Transport Budget, or $210 million over five years, be allocated for this package.
On-road bike lanes can be delivered for as little as $35,000 per km, with protected bike paths with kerbing costing around $100,00 per km. Fully separated ‘bike freeways’ and off-road cycle paths, such as Perth’s Principle share paths, cost up to $1m-$1.5m per km.
110 kilometres of fully separated bicycle route can be provided for the same cost as one kilometre of freeway.
