Simon Corbell has announced that with the Mawson Park and Ride filling up by 8.30am the facility has been expanded.
“Bike and Ride, and Park and Ride facilities were launched in Mawson on Athllon Drive in January 2010 providing 97 parking spaces and 18 secure bike lockers,” Mr Corbell said.
“From the day it opened, Park and Ride opportunities at Mawson has been in high demand with the free car park often reaching full capacity before 8.30 am on weekdays.
“In response, the ACT Government has invested $550,000 to double the capacity of the car park providing an additional 90 parking spaces. This funding also includes the provision of a new bike storage cage that can hold up to 24 bikes at a time.
“Ten of the existing bicycle lockers at Mawson have been relocated to areas in Canberra where demand for lockers is high, including the new Park and Ride facility on Flemington Road in Mitchell.”
“The Mawson facility is just a short walk from the local shops and is located next to the Athllon Drive bus stop. Buses service this route every five minutes during peak periods and every 10 minutes during off-peak times.”
