Policy Statement & Initiatives

Policy Statement
The Rudd Labor Government strongly encourages Australians, and I encourage the people in Isaacs, to choose cycling as an option for transport and for recreation.

The National Cycling Strategy 2011-2016 sets a target of doubling the number of people regularly riding bicycles. It is signed by the Federal, State and Territory ministers for roads and transport. You can read about it here: www.austroads.com.au/abc/national-cycling-strategy.

Proposed Initiatives
In the future, the Federal Labor Government will encourage all States and Territories to consider the provision of a safe, separated cycleway during the construction of Federally-funded urban roads, noting that the provision of cycle paths is the responsibility of local, state and territory governments.

Encouragment and promotion of cycling
Cycling is a fun and healthy mode of transport. It promotes good health and is a great way for people to get their 30 minutes of daily physical activity. I have enjoyed cycling all my life and find it helps keep me fit. I am a member of the Riders on the Hill – a group of MPs and staff who ride together on a Wednesday mornings when Parliament is sitting, even on icy Canberra mornings!
