Swan CycleConnect Strategy
The City of Swan has developed the Swan CycleConnect Strategy(PDF, 8MB) to guide the development of cycling routes and facilities within the City and to ensure connectivity with neighbouring local government areas. The strategy also ensures an appropriate level of service is provided on designated roads to suit the needs of their predominate cycling user groups.
The strategy was released for public comment then adopted by Council in November 2012. It includes a prioritised construction schedule which will be implemented through the City's capital works program.
Principal Shared Use Path
The City of Swan is working with relevant State Government agencies and consultants to progress the design and construction of the Principal Shared Use Path (PSP) between the Guildford train station and Midland.
This infrastructure is an important cycling connection providing a "spine" to the Midland cycle network and linking to infrastructure such as the new Midland Health Campus.
The planning and design components of this project are almost complete and construction is expected to proceed quickly.
Eventually, the PSP will run all the way from Perth to Midland along the railway corridor.
