Freo's View


Posted in bicycles, city of fremantle, cycling, local government, traffic, Uncategorized by freoview on September 11, 2018


The City of Fremantle is asking cyclists about their experiences riding around Freo as part of a review of the City’s bike plan.

The City of Fremantle Local Bicycle Plan was adopted in 2014 with the goal of doubling the number of bike trips in Fremantle by 2018 by providing better cycling infrastructure, reducing the barriers to cycling and encouraging more people to ride a bike.

Since 2013 the City of Fremantle has installed 2.3km of on-road bike lanes and 1km of new bike paths, upgraded six key intersections with bike head-start facilities and rolled out Bicycle Awareness Zones over 6km of local and city centre roads.

The City has also upgraded more than 2km of path along popular coastal routes, installed more than 160 bike parking bays and added green bike lane treatments at intersections along four major roads.

Cyclists can provide their feedback on Fremantle bike network by completing a survey on the City’s My Say Freo website.

They can also map their regular routes and good bike spaces, highlight problem areas and share ideas on an interactive map.

The survey is open until 9 October, with a new bike plan expected to be presented to the council for endorsement early next year.

    Not sure I agree with you, Ben. It is a survey targeted at cyclists, so the questions are relevant, and it is well known that Fremantle Council want more bicycles and less cars, which seems to be the norm around the world nowadays, even when I don’t totally agree with that philosophy.

    Terribly worded survey.

    There is nothing except a pro-cycle agenda being asked for. $100 bet. This is simple solicitation for reasons to spend more money on bike infrastructure. This will be used in a future marketing initiative along the lines of “we listened to you and will spend more money on….”
