Installing Public Bike Racks for Visitors

Jillian Woolmer
City of Cockburn

Bike Lockers are fine for staff to use when they ride to work. We also have bike racks for visitors next to the library and a bike fix station. Bike parking is closer than car parking and it gets used pretty frequently as you have good passive surveillance as it is near a window and also adjacent to the main access from the car park.

We have been installing racks for staff and separate racks for visitor access at our newer workplaces at the Operations Centre and Cockburn ARC. Bikes for visitors tend to be outside the fence so they are easy for visitors to access while staff racks are within the fenced area. They are covered by electronic surveillance as well as passive surveillance as they are near main entries.

Visitor racks provided at the Cockburn ARC (Aquatic Recreation Centre) have electronic surveillance and are near the main entry. Additional racks are also available nearby.

Demand for bike parking is increasing at workplaces and also various places we want to go throughout the City of Cockburn. The latest place that we installed public bike parking is at the northern end of Coogee beach - ready for Summer. This location is primarily for visitors to Port Coogee to look at the Omeo Diver Trail and is adjacent to the new stairs at Omeo Reserve. As more and more people ride, we will be adding more bike parking.

Great to hear the City of Cockburn is so proactive about making sure their bike parking keeps up with demand.
