Update 26/Sep/11: the original petition used a funding model based on a developer sponsored Bicycle Transition Centre and the development land suggested was 3 Cliff Street. The developer funded model still may be the way to go and other locations for the centre may be considered.
To promote easy cycling to work and reduce traffic congestion a Perth bicycle transit station is a step forward.
The Station shall provide:
• 24-hour, 7 days/week access to bicycle storage, showers and lockers with key card access.
• Bicycle servicing and retail shop on site.
• Tea, coffee and a bite to eat.
• Wi-Fi access.
• Dry cleaning and laundry services while the cyclists are at work.
Around the globe bicycle stations commonly operate like a health club. They make cycling to work easier, and they build a community.
The Web Site Link above links to a full proposal for the development of a Public Bicycle Transit Station located at 3 Cliff Street, Perth (next to the Jacob’s Ladder, with access from both the top and bottom of the ladder).
I hereby give my support to Paul and Joy Madden’s proposal to the Perth City Council to build a bicycle transit station as part of an integrated development at 3 Cliff St. Perth.
The Bicycle Transit Station for Perth City petition to Perth City Town Council was written by Paul & Joy Madden and is in the category City & Town Planning at GoPetition.
