On 29 October 2012, the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport released Walking, Riding and Access to Public Transport: draft report for discussion.
The Australian Government states that:
“The draft report explores how the Australian Government can work with other governments, business and the community to encourage and support walking and riding as part of the transport systems in Australia’s cities and towns.”
Bicycle NSW encourages our members, bicycle user groups and other interested parties to write a submission to The Department of Infrastructure and Transport to show your support for this excellent document and to encourage Government to deliver on the sentiments expressed in the report.
Alternatively, if you are pressed for time, then fill out the Active Travel Survey.
Click here to visit the Federal Department of Transport and Infrastructure site which will allow you to complete the survey or submit your written thoughts.
Submissions are open until 5pm on 31 January 2013.
