The Australian Greens have repeatedly requested that cycling receive federal transport funding. Last year, we made a budget submission for $80 million, however this was rejected by the government.

The National Cycling Strategy, agreed to by State and Federal Governments, set a target to double the rate of cycling by 2016, with no funding attached. Meanwhile the Victorian government has slashed its cycling budget and WA is barely catching up to the funding levels that existed in the mid 1990s.

We want to change that and will make the case using for substantial and sustained funding for cycling the Bike Blackspot campaign.

Cyclists around Australia who are fed up with being endangered, ignored and neglected by Governments are invited to share your experiences of our nation’s bike blackspots and help us to make the case for why cycling funding is urgently needed.

So tell us, where are the most obvious gaps or dangerous parts of the cycle network in your area? Where is key cycling infrastructure lacking? Which routes are incomplete? Where are end of trip facilities most needed? (Photos really help, so make sure you include one so we can see what you mean).

Your feedback is sent to your state transport minister, the federal transport minister and Senator Scott Ludlam plus the Greens transport spokesperson in your state. Your report is also logged on the bike blackspot map and will be used to make the case for better bike funding.

Together let’s build a better cycle network.
