This project implementation page will discuss projects that are a result of the Integrated Cycling Strategy (ICS).  Find out more about the forthcoming projects.


General

Since the Integrated Cycling Strategy was formally adopted by Council on 5 May 2015, the City has undertaken the Local Bike Route (LBR) review, in accordance with the requirements of the WA Bicycle Network Plan.

This process identified prospective route corridors for the primary and secondary cycling routes discussed in section 7.1 of the ICS (pages 106 & 107).

A key outcome from the LBR review identified that the most significant of those primary routes, warranting early delivery, was a four kilometre long east-west route connecting two of the City's main activity centres.

  • The eastern focus of this route is the 'Strategic Metropolitan Centre' of Stirling, which also benefits from direct connectivity to the primary PSP route along the Mitchell Freeway and Stirling train station. 
  • The western focus of the route is the District Centre of Scarborough, which is currently the subject of a major redevelopment under the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA) and through which runs the primary coastal cycling route.

In October 2015 the City applied to the Department of Transport (DoT) for two year PBN grant funding, for the design and first phase construction of the Stirling to Scarborough Bicycle Boulevard, and was awarded a grant for $345,000 in May 2016. Moorland Street is uniquely placed to be the main focus for this route. 


Project Details: Moorland Street 'Bicycle Boulevard'

The City, in partnership with the Department of Transport who are co-funding this work, has engaged GTA Consultants to progress the initial concepts for this route through to formal public consultation and final design.

Ahead of the formal public meeting, GTA are inviting preliminary comments on the proposals and have provided an overview presentation outlining some of the considerations and options available in providing a route based on the principles of 'Self-Explaining Roads' and 'Safe Active Streets'.  Should you wish to participate in this process you can view the preliminary presentation which can be downloaded after which you are invited to provide comment by completing a survey questionnaire

You are, hereby, invited to attend the open community consultation workshop, to be held in the main Function Hall of Scarborough Civic Centre, 173 Gildercliffe Street, commencing at 10.00am and concluding around 12 noon on Saturday 20 May 2017.
