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.
