Broadway cycling and pedestrian upgrades - Iolanthe Street to Railway Parade, Bassendean

The Town of Bassendean and Public Transport Authority (PTA) intend to improve cycling and pedestrian infrastructure along Broadway from Iolanthe Street to Railway Parade, terminating at Bassendean Station.

The project will make riding or walking to Bassendean Station a more attractive option for local residents by improving the separation of these modes from vehicle movements. The project also has the potential to reduce traffic congestion around Bassendean Station by encouraging more people to choose active transport modes when commuting to the station.

 

The project will include:

 

  • Upgrading 550m of bicycle lane on either side of the roadway along Broadway,
  • Upgrade of kerbing and footpaths at the start and finish of the bicycle lanes to improve connectivity with existing bicycle and pedestrian paths, and
  • Improvements to pedestrian crossings at the intersection of Broadway and Railway Parade.

 

The red asphalt bicycle lanes will be 1.25m wide and separated from traffic lanes by a 0.5m painted buffer. The lanes will be created within the existing roadway without encroaching on verges or driveways.

The Town of Bassendean and PTA would like to present the Broadway concept design so that you have the opportunity to provide comment ahead of construction; please see preliminary plans.

 

Further streetscape and onsite stormwater infiltration improvement will be considered in the detailed design phase.

 

After the consideration of community feedback, construction is expected to start in the first half of 2019 and will be delivered by PTA contractors. The PTA will keep residents informed of potential construction impacts prior to and during work.    

You can provide comment on the Broadway cycling and pedestrian upgrades concept design at https://www.yoursay.bassendean.wa.gov.au

Should you have any queries please contact the Town on 9377 8000 or  mail@bassendean.wa.gov.au by 5.00 pm Friday, 26 October 2018
