current situation Roe St cycle path

Postby twowheels » Sat Feb 01, 2014 12:30 am

G'day, what is the current situation with the cycle path (PSP) southside of Roe Street between Barrack St and City West station via Perth Arena? notice the temporary bus station on south side of Roe St a few days ago.

Also, does any Department/organization provide updates on cycle path detours/re-routes? thanks

Main Roads provide a weekly update which has information on Roe St PSP and other cycle paths in the Perth CBD:

Thx for link. Travelling east to west, path now turns left (south) at about the Chinatown Lion Gate or Lake St. The path goes over what seems to be a sloped roof (of rail underground), then continues to the temporary maze ramp which sets you down at the east side of the Arena. Found out that not necessary to go to Wellington St south side of Arena any longer, the path now connected to North side - sweet.

What do you think about the new traffic calming at the "Chinatown" entrance. CoPerth/MRA painted large red circles of various sizes on the road. Car drivers are unsure what that means, and slow down (at least this morning). Must be the cheapest way to drop car speeds.....

This area seems to be working fairly well during commuting hours, with my only grumble being waiting to turn right onto the Roe St PSP (from the tunnel roof area) and cyclists on my right not signalling that they're turning left. So I'm waiting...waiting...and for nothing. But it's pretty minor. The path is clearly marked, you know where the traffic is coming from (if you read the markings), I'm pretty happy with it.

Having also used the bus station there, that's well built as well. Nice piece of work all around.

Sorry for the dumb question. Just moved to Maylands and just started riding again. When I ride into East Perth I can either go over the footbridge at Claisbrook or go around and on to Lord St. I work at Princess Margaret, coffee at Station Sq in Subi each morning (Louis baxter). Don't seem to be able to get myself past the mess around the new station works.

Could a regular rider draw me a mud map to get me through Perth or Northbridge and onto the path at the rear of the Arena please.
Cheers, Flash

go over the Claisebrook footbridge, then keep following the path straight on, cross Beaufort and William, go past the new bus terminal (all straight on), then look for a gap in the fence and a path that goes over the tunnel casing and then on to the arena. Depending on what is happening there, go behind or the front of the arena, and you are on you way to Subiaco.

Thanks... I went straight on up Roe to Thomas. Another test run on Sunday coming up :)

flashpixx, if you would rather avoid the area you can leave the PSP just after you pass under Lord Street and cycle along Aberdeen Street (sealed shoulders most of the way), then onto the Mitchell PSP as far as Loftus Street, then down Loftus Street to PMH (or onto the Fremantle PSP into Subi Square).

roland, when you rode through, could you see any reason for the path behind the Arena to be closed? It seems counter productive to me, to close it when events are on, as it makes cyclists join the swarm of pedestrians out the front of the Arena. Surely it would be far better for us to go around the back and minimise those conflicts.

Thanks rolandp and wellington_street. I would have preferred audio roland... so I can hear you swear at pedestrians ;-)

Will give them both a try, tho I do like the Aberdeen St route on initial impression.

Jeeze... that route sure looks like "fun" roland... I imagine you'd end up pretty freaking good at track standing if you ride through that many pedestrians regularly!

Thanks for this suggestion. Have been using it off and on, apologies for the tardy reply :D

Interesting video, thanks. Glad I don't have to commute that way.
