Looks like the Claremont Town Council or the responsible authority has at long last taken steps to extend or rather connect the cycle path from the Claremont Showgrounds to the Claremont Train Station. This is where one currently has to ride along Shenton Road which is pretty rough in places and pretty dodgy at both ends with the vehicles.
I noticed that last week too. It's about time - that stretch of road is a pain in the proverbial. I hope they link it into the existing path properly.
And just what are they building a little to the west of that stretch, at the point where the hairpin turn is?
Think outside the double triangle.
Imagine a world with no hypothetical scenarios.
The problem is with it is that it is not against the railway line, so users will still have to engage with vehicles entering and exiting the car park. Better than what we have, but not the best solution.
No idea. It has been a mystery for months and months.
Have had the chance to ride this. All okay except for the eastern end ... no off ramp so means a spot of kerb jumping. Also they have left the D-Bar in place which impairs the entry/exit from the path.
Also if one is a non-bike user (e.g., gopher or wheel chair) then forget it unless they can climb kerbs.
Oh at the western end, when heading east the curve can catch one out if not careful.
Update May 30, 2008: I lodged during the preceding week a hazard report via the Department for Planning and Infrastructure â€œHazard report formâ€ about my concerns with the eastern end of the path. Namely there was no entry/exit ramp and the D-Bar had been left in place impairing access. I am pleased to report that the Town of Claremont has phoned about the report and indicated that there contractor will address the concerns in the first week of June. Well done Town of Claremont.
Newbie here, just moved to Claremont. Just wanted to say thanks to Andrew for getting in touch with the council.
I've been using that pathway a lot and I must say, I'm really enjoying riding conditions in Perth so far.
I hope I can contribute a bit to the forum...
