- Encouraging physical activity leading to health benefits
A re-elected McGowan Government will deliver $350,000 to the City of Kwinana to design and construct the junior bike road safety track in Kwinana.
This initiative will simulate road traffic conditions in a safe environment so that children aged up to ten years of age have the opportunity to safely navigate road conditions and experience road-related traffic situations in a controlled manner, under the care and supervision of their parents or guardians.
This proposal would simulate real-life road traffic layouts, including traffic lights and would be built on Calista Oval adjacent to the Adventure Park.
The City of Kwinana has been advocating for this project and I am thrilled that a re-elected McGowan Government will make this concept a reality for people in Kwinana.
Comments by Roger Cook MLA, WA Labor Member for Kwinana:
“As the local Member for Kwinana, I’ve always advocated for kids to get active, especially by encouraging bike riding in the area. This project will ensure that kids get the confidence and road safety knowledge they need to ride safely in the community.”
“A re-elected McGowan Government will make this concept a reality for kids in Kwinana and I’m excited to see it come together in the near future.”
Comments by Mayor Carol Adams, City of Kwinana:
“This will be a fantastic road safety initiative for the children and young families of Kwinana and the region. This is Perth’s very first purpose-built junior safety track which will even include operational traffic control signals and will help young children to learn about road safety in a controlled environment. We thank the Local Member for Kwinana Roger Cook for working with the City and to commit to this unique facility, which focuses on road safety learning outcomes for the young children of Kwinana.”
