Council’s transport strategic plan, People Movement and Places, commits Council to a transport hierarchy that puts pedestrians first, followed by people on bicycles, public transport, service vehicles, shared mobility and then private motor vehicles. The transport plan includes a range of signature projects and actions related to cycling including a network of separated cycleways, secure bike parking facilities at Bondi Junction interchange, bike parking throughout the LGA, facilitating active travel to schools and continuing to roll out the Waverley Bike Plan.
Public consultation on the transport plan revealed overwhelming community support for increased cycling infrastructure, in particular for separated cycleways, which were ranked by the community as the highest priority transport project for Council. On 20 March 2018, Council resolved to establish a Cycleway and Bike Facilities Committee to implement the cycling related actions of the People Movement and Places plan.
