Consultation has concluded

Background

The City of Cockburn has received $290,000 in funding assistance from Department of Transport to upgrade the path on Hope Road, between Bibra Drive and Pausin Crescent in Bibra Lake.

This path is an essential link for people who walk and ride bikes, connecting to the Kwinana Freeway and Bibra Lake shared paths. However, it is currently considered sub-standard.

The upgrades aim to help people aged 8 – 80 going to work, school or Murdoch University. A safer path will help to encourage less confident riders and families to start riding for transport. The upgraded path will be built off road to reduce interaction with vehicles and to encourage more people to commute on their bike instead of car.

A draft design for the upgraded path has been developed. The proposed design overcomes several challenges on Hope Road, such as the change in ground levels, driveways and underground services.

Please view the draft design and share your feedback. Community input will be considered as we review the draft design and develop a more detailed design.

    Thank you for your feedback

    In October 2020 we asked for your feedback on the draft design for the Hope Road shared path upgrades.

    The proposed upgrades are aimed at people aged 8 – 80 going to work, school or Murdoch University. It is envisaged the upgrades will help to encourage less confident riders and families to start riding for transport.

    Over 300 people visited the project page, and we received a total of 28 submissions. Thank you for having your say on the draft design. A summary of the feedback is available in the Document Library.

    The City is now reviewing the draft design in consultation with the Department of Transport in order to prepare a detailed design.

    Construction dates are to be confirmed, however it is envisaged the project will commence in the 2020-21 financial year. For future updates on this project, please contact the City of Cockburn on 08 9411 3444 or customer@cockburn.wa.gov.au.
