Between January 2005 and December 2009, Albury had 480 casualty crashes. Of these, 13.8% (66) involved cyclists. When looking at road crash data from the South West Region and across NSW, crashes involving cyclists accounted for 4.9% and 5.9% of total crashes respectively.
Albury consistently has a higher number of crashes involving cyclists than both the South West Region and NSW, and as such, bicycle safety projects are conducted annually. A bicycle safety project will be conducted in 2010, in the lead-up to NSW Bike Week. The project will help raise awareness of cyclists on and near roads, and encourages motorists to 'share the road' with bikes. The project will also encourage the community to "get on a bike" and promote family rides during NSW Bike Week.
A community consultation into cycling issues for the Albury Community was conducted in 2007 and information from this helped formulate the 2009-2014 AlburyCity Bicycle Plan. The Plan highlights bicycle-related issues for Albury, analyses bicycle crashes in detail and outlines proposed works for the construction of bike trails for the next five-years.
The Road Safety Officer uses the crash data and works schedule to apply for funding grants annually from the NSW RTA. The funding is matched by AlburyCity and is used to construct new off-road bike trails. Funding received usually allows for approximately 800m of off-road trails to be completed each year.
