The Parliamentary Committee has recently released a report on cycling issues in Queensland which gives recommendations that if adopted would make the Sunshine State a better and safer place to live and ride a bike.

The report has attention to planning detail with its call to strengthen existing cycling strategies and provisions through government planning and delivering strategies that would see the delivery of a safer connected bikeway network across the state.

68 recommendations are put forward by the Parliamentary Committee, including having flashing lights displayed in daylight hours, and infringement penalties for children being tripled and brought in line with adult drivers.

Bicycle Queensland will now be working with the State Government through the Transport Minister and his department (Transport and Main Roads) to see the report turned into positive action for all Queenslanders.
