CYCLING INFRASTRUCTURE: Separate Bicycle Lanes for Salvado Road, Wembley

The Western Suburbs Weekly (May 10 – 16, 2011, p. 10) is reporting that the Town of Cambridge approved at an April 2011 Council meeting the installation of separate cycling lanes and pedestrian paths on Salvado Road, Wembley, between Selby Street to Haydn Bunton Drive.

Ashleigh Davis wrote in the Western Suburbs Weekly …

 

SEPARATE cycle lanes and pedestrian paths will be part of a new path on Salvado Road, which was approved at last month’s Town of Cambridge council meeting. The $1.6 million cycleway costs will be shared with the City of Subiaco because Salvado Road is on the boundary of the two councils. The shared path will benefit commuter cyclists, who would otherwise have to travel on the road to avoid conflict with pedestrians, and follow a continuous route from Selby Street to Haydn Bunton Drive, connecting to the principle shared path in the railway reserve.

The Town of Cambridge proposed plan for Salvado Road as presented to the Council at the April 19, 2011 Council meeting can be found here.  The minutes from the Council meeting can be found here.

    Who on earth writes this stuff? Oh, I see, Asleigh Davis…. fact is commuter cyclists have to travel on the road to comply with the law 🙂
