Initiative 6 is in line with our guiding principle of Integrated supporting facilities and amenities.
Bike parking and end-of-trip facilities are an important part of encouraging people to ride their bicycles.
These facilities can include:
- bike repair stations
- water fountains
- showers and lockers.
We also want to support bicycle riders to include public transport in their longer commutes. We know that commuters prefer sheltered and secure bike parking, however, Surrey Hills Station is currently the only train station in Boroondara that provides this.
We also need to consider facilities for workplaces or educational institutions, including e-bike charging facilities at some locations.
Actions to support Initiative 6
- Complete a review of existing bike repair stations and water fountains and provide more facilities at strategic areas across Boroondara.
- Advocate for more and improved bike parking at all train stations. This could include removing some car parking bays to provide a Parkiteer cage at Hawthorn, Camberwell, East Camberwell, Canterbury, Riversdale, Burwood and Ashburton Stations. Provide or advocate for additional Parkiteer cages at other strategic locations including transport hubs.
- Complete a review of existing bike parking facilities and implement an action plan to deliver high-quality bike parking at key locations.
