Our demands for the Federal Election
Bicycle Network has released its Federal Election Policy Paper 2016.
And our Vote Bike campaign is ready to roll out to electorates across Australia as soon as the poll is called.
The paper contains a series of initiatives that a national government of any political persuasion can take on immediately to get Australians on bikes and healthy.
The paper suggests three key actions for the next Federal Government:
- Commit to a Bike Fund that provides $240 million a year across Australia
- Build for Bikes by providing bike infrastructure with all transport projects
- Get Aussies Active by funding a national preventative health program targeting physical inactivity, particularly in young people.
The paper goes into details on more than 30 specific steps that an incoming government needs to have on its agenda.
