Council has developed a new Walking and Cycling Plan (W&CP) for the City of PAE, which identifies strategic drivers and guides investment decisions in walking and cycling infrastructure for the next five years.
The Walking and Cycling Plan seeks to enhance walking and cycling as a main mode of transport through the creation of a safer and more accessible network for all.
The Plan has the following focus areas:
- Improve walking and cycling infrastructure
- Promote and encourage walking and cycling
- Provide information, invest in data and monitoring
What did we do?
To inform the creation of the City of PAE's Walking and Cycling Plan (W&CP), we reached out to our community via:
We received 18 responses to the questionnaire and 146 contributions were made on the interactive map tool which allowed people to share issues, gaps and ideas relevant to specific locations around PAE.
Staff also conducted targeted engagement with specific stakeholders such as the Port Adelaide Bicycle User Group (PortBUG) and Wellbeing SA, to better inform the W&CP.
Further to this Staff completed a ‘walk through’ the Port Centre with the PortBUG to identify improvements to cycling infrastructure specific to the City Centre.

The final Walking and Cycling Plan was endorsed by Council at their meeting on 9 August 2022. The W&CP and Council Minutes, are available under the Document Library.
The endorsed Walking and Cycling Plan will guide investment in infrastructure improvements within PAE.
We are currently scoping up the Walking and Cycling Projects for the 22/23 Financial year, which includes:
The project will define cycling routes throughout the Port Centre. This initiative leverages off the ‘Outer Harbour Greenway’ as a major cycling corridor, by providing alternatives to cyclists and better link them to services and destinations within the Port.
City Wide Secondary Bike Paths
This project will promote ‘neighbourhood cycling routes’ for the community and increase awareness for motorists to ‘share the road’ on these neighbourhood connections. This will be achieved by formalising neighbourhood connections with appropriate signage and line marking along with other supporting infrastructure improvements, such as path linkages and kerb ramps.
City Wide Cycle Parking Facilities
The project will provide end of trip facilities, namely cycle parking, at key locations and community buildings across the City.
Public Consultation Policy: Please note name and address are required to comply with Council’s Public Consultation Policy. All submissions will be treated as public documents upon receipt. Individuals will not be identified publicly without permission.
Closing the loop: The City of PAE will make efforts to 'close-the-loop' with project contributors and followers. We may occasionally send information to acknowledge a contribution, provide key updates on engagement and project processes and outcomes.
