Have your say on new proposed bike link

News Update 13 May 2024

The City of South Perth is proposing to create a safe bike link route from the South Perth Foreshore (SPF) to Curtin University, and you’re invited to comment on the draft concept design.

The draft concept design shows the possible creation of Safe Active Streets, with raised plateaus at intersections and speed humps to reduce speeds to 30km/h on:

  • Douglas Avenue (from SPF to Mill Point Road); and
  • from the intersection of Tate and Lawler Streets to where Elizabeth Street meets Canning Highway.

On a short section of Tate Street (from Mill Point Road to Lawler Street), the City is proposing to install a two-way protected bike lane.

To complete the route, the City would improve the existing bike lanes on Hayman Road by physically separating cyclists from other road users by installing kerbs.

The new proposed bike link would join up the SPF cycle paths to meet the existing shared paths at Kent Street roundabout which continue to Curtin University.

To find out more about the project visit Your Say South Perth or drop in and talk to the project team:

  • Anytime between 4.30pm–6.30pm, Thursday 23 May at Moresby Street Hall
  • Anytime between 10.30am–12.30pm, Saturday 25 May at Millpoint Caffe Bookshop

Subject to feedback, the City will apply for grant funding from the Western Australian Bicycle Network Grants Program to further develop the design.

Feedback closes 4pm, Tuesday 4 June 2024.
