THE City of South Perth and Town of Victoria Park will receive $562,500 to upgrade a series of cycle paths over the next two years.

The funding, provided through the Perth Bicycle Network and Regional Bicycle Network grants programs, aims to assist local government authorities to plan, design and build important cycling facilities for their respective communities.

“This cash injection into WA’s bike network will help ensure infrastructure is continuous across local government boundaries and provide enhanced recreational, commuter and tourism cycling experiences for residents and visitors to WA,” Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said.
