Auckland Transport are after feedback on their design for bike parking at Panmure Station with a view to rolling it out to the rest of the network.
Designs for cycle parking at the new Panmure Railway Station could be wheeled out across the region.
Auckland Transport wants feedback on its designs for safe, dry and secure bike parking at Panmure (attached).
“We think we have created a simple functional structure that provides cyclists with secure and sheltered bike parking, now we want to know if it works for cyclists and other users of Panmure station,” says community transport manager Matthew Rednall.
“Bike parking is going to be rolled-out to stations across Auckland and it’s important we give people something they want and they will use.”
Cycle Action Auckland chair Barbara Cuthbert is keen on developing a practical template for developing bike parking facilities across Auckland. “Good bike parking will encourage more people to combine public transport and cycling and reduce pressure on park and ride. It’s good timing to do this survey while the public is responding to AT’s review of city- wide parking policies. Well done, Auckland Transport.“
Visit www.at.govt.nz/panmurebikepark to view the designs and give feedback. You can have your say until 4 July.
And here’s what it looks like.
And here are two possible layouts
Overall this looks like a good addition to the Panmure Station and it would be great to see them at all stations around the network along with on key bus routes. My only concern is that long term they might not be big enough – but I guess that’s not a bad problem to have.
