Local government leaders are being reminded to get on their bikes and apply for cycling infrastructure funding before it’s too late.
The latest round of grant funding is available up until December 20 this year, and can be accessed by the 48 councils with an endorsed Principal Cycle Network Plan.
Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey says the State Government was matching funding for cycling projects on a 50:50 basis as part of the 2018-19 Cycle Network Local Government Grants program.
“The Queensland Government is committed to accelerating the delivery of the principal cycle network across the state as part of the Queensland Cycling Strategy.”
“We have allocated $17 million to cycling projects across Queensland in 2017-18 under the Cycle Network Local Government Grants program and since 2006, we have awarded grants to more than 482 cycling infrastructure projects as part of the program.”
