Goomalling Bike Plan 2020-2030 

Council received a $10,000 grant from Department of Transport to review and develop a new Bike Plan for Goomalling town site.  GTA Consultant were the successful tenderers to assist Council with this process and have created a plan that aligns with Department of Transport’s Western Australian Bicycle Network (WABN) Plan 2017, which will assist in attracting future funding through Department of Transport WABN grant program.

The Goomalling Bike Plan 2020-2030 was adopted by Council at their special meeting on 29 April 2020.  The plan highlights gaps in our current provision of shared path network compared to contemporary standards as well as other opportunities to enhance user experience.  The outcomes within the plan are aligned with our Recreational Master Plan and are achievable with support from Department of Transport.

The plan highlights short-term improvements such as:
  • Crossing point improvements and ramp upgrades
  • Complete the missing links in the network
  • Access to pump park
  • End of trip facilities: water fountains, seating and repair stations
Medium to long term improvements include:
  • Safe Active Street (Hoddy Street)
  • Protected on-road cycling (Forrest St, Railway Tce, Quinlan St)
  • Shared Paths
  • Wayfinding signage
  • Your Move program
  • Lighting

1.  Kerb ramp upgrades – kerb ramp connections should be constructed as a priority to ensure a continuous connected network Hoddy and Quinlan Street are particularly important.
