Walking and cycling


Project overview

Walking and cycling are environmentally-friendly, low-cost ways of getting around. They play an important role in our integrated transport system and provide a range of personal and community benefits too.

Key benefits

Cycling and walking for short local trips instead of driving:

  • reduces congestion on our roads
  • frees up capacity on public transport for customers travelling further.

Through effectively planning for an active future in NSW, we will deliver the infrastructure, education programs and facilities to encourage people to walk and cycle.

We are working with councils, communities and the development industry to make walking and cycling more convenient, safer and enjoyable for people across NSW.

Current projects

Transport has allocated $39 million to fund more than 300 walking and cycling projects across NSW during the 2016-17 financial year.

These projects are managed by Roads and Maritime Services Walking and Cycling Projects
