Bayswater to Morley Bike Boulevard

The City of Bayswater has been working with the Department of Transport to establish a bike boulevard between Bayswater and the Morley town centre. The project is part of the pilot Safe Active Streets Program being implemented across Perth.

Bike boulevards are routes on quiet local streets, where speeds have been reduced to 30 km/h to allow people in cars and on bikes to share the street safely. With lower traffic speeds, streets are also much safer for pedestrians and children and additional tree planting and landscaping make them more attractive places to walk and ride.

Bike boulevards are designed to create safe and comfortable riding environments for bike riders with all levels of experience. People on bikes can ride closer to the middle of the street, with cars passing only if there is enough space to do so safely.

Project background

Following engagement with local residents and other stakeholders, Stage 1 of the bike boulevard - Leake Street and May Street - was officially opened in September 2017 and runs from the river across the railway line to Adelphi Street.

For further information about this project, including a Fact Sheet and 'How to Guide' for tips on how to use the bike boulevard, please click on the below link.
