Perth CBD cycling terminus to cater for bike boom

Perth’s bike boom has led to the proposal from the state government to provide a cycling facility featuring showers, lockers and parking for 500 bikes in the Perth CBD.

The ten-year bicycle network plan, released by Transport Minister Troy Buswell, proposes to spend up to $10million in expanding existing bike paths and creating new paths within a 15 kilometre radius of the city. According to WA Today, the plan is in response to a five-fold increase in the number of people cycling to work or for leisure in Perth: about 300,000 cyclists per month take to the roads and cycle paths across the city.

Among the 12 recommendations of the Government Plan is a proposal for a high-quality ‘end-of-trip’ terminus to provide parking for 500 bikes, showers and locker facilities which would operate on a fee-for-service basis. The government has suggested a feasibility study be carried out, and suggested the facility could be created by converting existing space within a multi-storey car park.

Meanwhile, the City of Perth is working on its own cycling plan, which will be released in June.
