Share your feedback on the draft design for the Hope Road shared path upgrades


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. The path is an essential pedestrian and cycle link, connecting to the Kwinana Freeway and Bibra Lake shared paths, but it is currently sub-standard. The upgrades are part of a long term plan for a safer and better connected shared path network in Cockburn.

The section of path we are constructing is aimed at people aged 8 – 80 going to work, school or Murdoch Uni. It is aimed at getting less confident riders and families starting riding for transport. The path will be built off road to reduce interaction with vehicles and to encourage a higher cycling participation rate. This section of path forms the first section of the longer route and further grant applications will be submitted in the future to better connect the wetlands to waves route, outlined in our long term Walking and Bike Riding Plan.

A draft design has been developed, tailored to overcoming the site's many challenges, such as the change in ground levels, driveways and underground services. We would like to hear your feedback on the draft. After this, we will work on a detailed design and then go out to tender. A construction time frame is yet to be confirmed, however we envisage works will commence this financial year.

    Will the construction of the path restrict any access to the Meller Park car park ? and can you please explain the "raised plateau" in a bit more detail as the current detail is a bit ambiguous

    Nathan Dryden asked 6 days ago

    Hi Nathan, 

    Thanks so much for your interest in the project. 

    The path upgrades are simply that – there are no restrictions on access to the Meller Park car park as a result of the path upgrades. 

    The raised plateau is a type of speed hump, which will be installed at the entry of the car park, to reduce the speed of cars coming in. This is a busy car park so will help to improve safety. 

    We hope this provides further clarity and welcome you to contact us directly on 08 9411 3444 to discuss further. 

    Kind regards,

    The Project Team
