Who is this plan for?

Bicycle Tasmania’s Creating Healthy Connections - Moving Tasmania Forward campaign is an evolution of the Creating Healthy Connections document which was published in 2012.  The campaign documentation is now primarily available online through the Bicycle Tasmania website, and is updated as required as projects evolve.  

Creating Healthy Connections - Moving Tasmania Forward is a must read for:

  • Bicycle Tasmania members
  • People who are considering becoming members of Bicycle Tasmania
  • People who ride bicycles in Tasmania
  • People who would like to ride bicycles in Tasmania
  • Bicycle riding advocates in Tasmania
  • Politicians in Tasmania
  • Policy makers in Tasmania
  • Transport engineers in Tasmania
  • People with interest in population health improvement
  • People with interest in chronic disease prevention

The Creating Healthy Connections campaign plan aims to help Tasmanians to see the potential of a well connected network of bicycle facilities and to keep government accountable for the development of a bicycle network to benefit all Tasmanians. This plan identifies the important links in Tasmania’s Principal Urban Bicycle Networks and will help turn ideas for improved facilities into reality. It has the following objectives:

  • Publicise Bicycle Tasmania’s facilities development campaign
  • Provide justification for action on providing bicycle facilities in Tasmania
  • Provide a brief summary of the state of bicycle riding in Tasmania
  • Describe the different bicycle rider types and facilities that they can use
  • Provide stakeholders with a clear direction for bicycle facilities development
  • Organise the bicycle riding community around priority facilities
  • Show leadership to Government

Associated with this introductory material are Bicycle Facility Fact Sheets, which detail recommended projects around Tasmania. Through this plan, Bicycle Tasmania members, community organisations and decision makers are invited to continue discussions, debate and prioritisation, to urge all tiers of Government to strongly back the planning and construction of a connected bicycle riding network.
