Cycling for Active Transport Grants Announced

The Tasmanian Government Cycling for Active Transport - Local Infrastructure Development Fund Grants were announced on 26 June.  This fund was set up to provide grants to local government and community-based organisations to develop local cycling infrastructure, facilities and programs that encourage people to cycle for transport.
Whilst this means that the program wasn't specifically targeted at trail development, several of the grants are all for the betterment of the trail and track network that is slowly building in Tasmania.
Projects included: 
  • The Safe Routes to School Program in Kingborough by funding an off-road cycling connection between the Algona Rd underpass and Huntingfield;·       
  • Completion of the Barossa Creek off-road shared path in Glenorchy;
  • Improvements to on-road cycling lanes at four signalised intersections in Launceston;
  • Improvements to signage and line marking on the Intercity Cycleway in Hobart; and
  • Widening and other improvements to Bluff Track on Flinders Island to enable people to use it for cycling.

I particularly like the sound of that last one.
