**Active Travel…

Welcome to the Port Adelaide Bicycle User Group – local residents & volunteers working to improve things for ‘utility’ bicycle use & active mobility for all residents.

Our goals: To ensure…

  • a better deal for bicycle use & Active Mobility generally across the PA/E Council Area 
  • Active Transport is considered in all planning & investment initiatives
  • provision of more Greenways, off-road bike paths & Active Travel connectivity
  • lower traffic speeds, safer roads & a bike & walking-friendly community
  • a Better Bicycle Future!

Our approach: Voluntary & cooperative community action, working with Council, Government & fellow members of the community:

  • to identify potential bicycle & Active Transport routes & destinations
  • to build strong support for bicycle use & all forms of Active Transport 
  • to promote new initiatives & opportunities for improved infrastructure
  • to provide a voice for ‘practical’ bicycle use, walking, use of mobility devices & all other forms of Active Transport.

Our Current Focus: Over 2019 we’ll be focussing on:

  • the completion & launch of the Outer Harbor Greenway
  • final implementation of the Port’s Local Area Bicycle Plan 2015-2020
  • development of a new Pt Adelaide/Enfield Integrated Transport Plan
  • participating in development of new bikeways associated with the Northern Connector freeway, the Dock One housing development and Port Dock Rail Station project and the Port Expressway
  • continuing works in the Rosewater Local Area Traffic Management Plan.
