Things looking up for the bike cages?

By johnboy - 21 April 2011 6

bike cage with bike

Earlier in the week Danni sent in evidence of less than enthusiastic uptake for the Belconnen bus interchange bike cage.

Today Susan has very kindly sent in evidence that things have improved somewhat.

Or maybe not.

Been more than 3 weeks since I put my application for a card in. Still nothing. That would be why they remain empty I’m guessing…

I actually saw a red trike in that Belco cage a couple of weeks back!

The bike cages are a good idea, however the “improvements” made to Belconnen are designed to detract pedestrians and cyclists and encourage people to drive and pay for parking. You probably wouldn’t have noticed the fragments of cycle lanes and pathways around the area that don’t join up and make it far more dangerous to get around Belconnen unless you are a local. For public servants in the area the removal of the red bridge has made a quick trip to the mall for lunch far longer (and not worth the bother). Then the fencing to stop people trying to get across to the mall quicker has made visibility for pedestrians and drivers far more dangerous. The area is now a black spot, whereas before all the improvements started the area rarely had any accidents, in the years I’ve been a local I can’t recall a single one. In the past year I know of at least six. So don’t knock the bike cages, they are practical and people would be willing to use them… now if they only had safe passage around Belconnen on their bikes to reach them.

Haha how hilarious. It’s stupid having that cage there anyways since the office blocks nearby all have their own bike storage.

Looks to me like a great place to leave your kids while you go shopping, Secure, plenty of fresh air….
