Bicycle Infrastructure spending in Glen Eira

A recent Bicycle Victoria report analysing local govt expenditure across all the 79 municipalities in the state gave Glen Eira a poor ranking in terms of current and past investment over a four year time frame.

the full report is at

One of the most interesting aspects is the graph on page 11 that gives a listing of the per capita spending across 31 Metro councils over the past four years- Glen Eira comes in at fourth from the bottom.

Glen Eira does have a very good Bicycling Strategy released in 2010 that needs increased funding - last year council allocated $100k in the 2010/11 budget - there is certainly a lot of scope for a very significant increase this year.
