An aim of the Department of Transport in Western Australia is to make WA a place where riding is a safe, connected, convenient and widely accepted form of transport. Due to their versatility, Principal Shared Paths (PSP) are vital to encouraging the community to give riding a go. The paths can be used for long trips, but they are also suitable for less experienced riders and short trips, as well as for pedestrians.
The expansion of the PSP network is a key action of the Western Australian Bicycle Network Plan and will be delivered as part of State-wide major transport infrastructure projects.
Main Roads WA recently awarded Decmil the contract for the Mitchell Freeway PPS which includes:
