Making Roads Motorcycle Friendly

Motorcycle riders and their passengers are among our most vulnerable road users. While only making up around six per cent of WA's road users, motorcyclists account for more than 20 per cent of serious injuries and fatalities on WA's roads.

In response, WALGA together with Main Roads WA produced an adaptation of the Victoria Roads publication “Making Roads Motorcycle Friendly”. This publication can be downloaded from this website by completing the download form.

The publication was developed in consultation with the Western Australian Motorcycle and Scooter Safety Advisory Group and The Motorcycle Riders Association and includes information on why motorcyclists are at risk, road design and construction considerations, roadsides, maintenance and reinstatement considerations and keeping road works safe.
