Agreed, this is a grey area.

The crossing of a council boundary is an interesting measure of whether 
a route is local or regional.  Of course someone's going to find a very 
short unimportant cycleway which crosses a council boundary.  I think 
it's a very useful measure nevertheless.

By parity of reasoning, should a cycleway which crosses a state border 
be regarded national?  Like the one which crosses from Canberra (ACT) 
into Queanbeyan (NSW) on this bridge: 

The Mawson Trail is wholly within SA, but at 900km well exceeds the "as 
long as 200km" guideline for regional.

I'm sorry that I don't have answers, only questions.
