Pedestrians and Cyclists

We aim to achieve a safe and efficient road network as part of an integrated transport system for all road users. This includes pedestrians, cyclists and people with disabilities.

We contribute to the development of the State's network of shared paths and we maintain Principal Shared Paths (PSPs), that can also link with shared paths that are the responsibility of various local governments.

Additionally, we work with other WA Government agencies to promote the environmental, health and economic benefits of walking and cycling.
