Cycling safety in Victoria.
Submission Date: 2010 Journal
In response to the increasing pressures of climate change, traffic congestion and chronic ill-health associated with sedentary lifestyles, governments around the world are looking with increasing interest at active transport solutions. Significant investment is being directed towards cycling infrastructure and encouragement programs in many major western cities [1, 2]. New South Wales is no exception. In May 2010, the NSW Government released the NSW BikePlan (http://www.pcal.nsw. gov.au/__data/assets/ pdf_file/0009/90837 /NSWBikePlan_WEB. pdf ), which outlines a comprehensive range of activities to be undertaken over the next 10 years to promote and enhance cycling across the state.
