Cycle lane design guidance can be found in Austroads Guide to Road Design Part 3: Geometric Design (2021) and Guide to Road Design Part 6A (2017) - available to download for free from Publications | Austroads.
Austroads 'Cycling Aspects of Austroads Guides', 'Australian National Cycling Strategy', 'Low Cost Interventions to Encourage Cycling' and 'Cycling Infrastructure Case Studies' also provide some useful guidance.
