The Byron Shire 10 Year Bike Plan was adopted in October 2019. The Bike Plan will help us:

  • Provide well-located and better connected cycleways and shared paths.
  • Prioritise works. 
  • Enable community groups to prepare strategically-aligned grant applications in the future. 

Some of the main improvements identified in the 10-year Bike Plan include:

  • Construction of new off and on-road cycle ways, shared paths and road crossings.
  • Upgrade existing cycling infrastructure.
  • Amendment of road design to support safe cycling.
  • Encourage cycling as a fun and healthy transport alternative.

The information in the Appendix Maps should be considered alongside the information within the Byron Shire Bike Plan document.

The costs in section 5 are estimates only. Costs will be revisited and more accurate estimates prepared when planning any future work.
