INNOVATIVE FUNDING FOR CYCLING INFRASTRUCTURE
This study aims to investigate innovative funding models that could help local governments and community organisations to find additional funding sources to further accelerate delivery of the bicycle network in Queensland. The goal was not to find alternative funding streams, but to find sources that could be used in addition to those already being made available by the Queensland Government.
A lack of access to dedicated cycling infrastructure acts as a deterrent to bike riding in Queensland. Better access to safe, connected, practical and well-signed cycling infrastructure (off-road and on-road) has been identified as the number one enabler of ‘more bike riding, more often’ in the Queensland Cycling Strategy.
