PLANS are afoot to increase the number of bike paths across the city.

Logan City Council has completed a study which has identified – in order of priority – 32 new bike paths across multiple suburbs.

Now, it’s up to council to lobby the state government for money to pay for the plan.

The intention is to link key activity areas of the city to educational facilities, and to complement existing transport networks.

Councillor Teresa Lane said bike paths improve liveability.

“They encourage physical activity and also add extra transport options,” Cr Lane said.

“This will hopefully provide an incentive for people to get on their bike and make the most of the outdoors.”

There was a similar study in 2015, in which there were 30 planned projects.

Of those, 90% were delivered, or will soon be completed.

A study in 2018 found 9% of residents cycle for fun, while 4% use them as a mode of transport.
