Have Your Say: Design of the Bicycle Network Extension

Published on Thursday, 14 April 2022 at 9:00:00 AM

The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder is engaging the services of Civilstorm to commence the design phase of the extension of the City’s Bicycle Network with a shared-use path (SUP) and would like to receive feedback from interested parties.

The design will focus on extending the existing Forest Street SUP from Wilson Street (Kalgoorlie Train Station) to the Intersection of Lane Street and Hannan Street.

The City was awarded $25,000 through the Department of Transport’s Western Australian Bicycle Network (WABN) grants program to undertake this work.

The WABN funding will add 650m of SUP connecting the existing northern and southern networks. Construction is expected to take place in the 22/23 financial year.

City Mayor John Bowler said extension of the shared-use path will be of great use to commuters and the community of cyclists in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

“The project enhances liveability and connectedness in the City for families and commuters looking to travel around in a more sustainable way,” said Mayor Bowler.  

“The network extension also ensures safe cycling to and from the Kalgoorlie Central Business District and promotes the use of bicycles by tourists,” Mayor Bowler said.

The City would like to gain feedback and ideas from residents across the locations of the proposed path and other interested stakeholders to inform the final design and included features of the path.
