Walk and cycle to work Australia!

Have your say on a draft report into "Walking, Riding and Access to Public Transport" in Australia. Or just figure out what the Commonwealth government is thinking around sustainable transport. 
 
Available at <www.infrastructure.gov.au/activetransport>.
 
The draft report aims to stimulate a national discussion on active travel and builds on national policies currently in place, such as the National Urban Policy, the National Road Safety Strategy and the National Cycling Strategy.  It explores how the Australian Government can work with other governments, business and the community to encourage and support walking and riding as part of an efficient, safe and sustainable transport system in Australia.
 
The Department of Infrastructure and Transport welcomes your views on how to increase rates of walking and riding for transport purposes, and improve access to public transport.  You can respond to the Walking, Riding and Access to Public Transport draft report for discussion by either completing an online feedback questionnaire or uploading a written submission via our website www.infrastructure.gov.au/activetransport.  A three month consultation period will close on Thursday 31 January 2013 and feedback will inform the Department’s development of policy on walking, riding and access to public transport.
