This final report into active transport, released this week by the Federal Dept of Infrastructure and Transport, should provide valuable weight for the inclusion of bike paths when roads are constructed.  See our blog item, which includes a link to the source of the report:

The report represents a very emphatic statement that the federal government is a strong supporter of active travel and wants it embedded in the way Australia ‘does’ transport.   The Australian Government commits to positive provision for active transport in proposed transport infrastructure, and evaluations of proposals will take appropriate account of the needs and benefits of walking, riding and access to public transport.
