Petition - Funding for Cycling From Federal Government

Postby Aushiker » Sun Mar 30, 2014 11:54 pm

Greens WA are running a petition calling on Tony Abbot to fund cycling nationally ...

One of the most significant barriers to getting more people on bikes is concerns about safety.

Successive governments have neglected cycling; pouring money into roads with little thought for cyclists and the role bikes can play in easing congestion.

Senator Scott Ludlam has again lodged the Australian Greens budget submission for $80 million federal funding for cycling. Maybe our new cycling Prime Minister will be more responsive than the previous Labor Government who ignored it for four years?

Tell Tony you want him to fund cycling using the form below — or you can copy and paste our suggested text.


The petition can be found at http://www.greenswa.org.au/pleasefundcyclingtony
