Locker removal

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

TRANSPERTH has re­moved two metal bike stor­age lock­ers from Edge­wa­ter train sta­tion, say­ing the lock­ers are prone to van­dal­ism and il­le­gal dump­ing.

Pub­lic Trans­port Author­ity spokesman David Hynes said the bike shel­ter at Edge­wa­ter would be boosted from 38 bike spa­ces to 58 to com­pen­sate for removal of the two small lock­ers.

“This style of en­closed bike locker is out­dated (and) prone to van­dal­ism, stor­age for items other than bikes and, in some cases, il­le­gal dump­ing,” he said.

“We are grad­u­ally re­mov­ing this style of locker as we up­grade our bike stor­age ar­eas to mod­ern, mesh, large-for­mat bike shel­ters, which have in­creased pas­sive se­cu­rity and built-in CCTV sys­tems.”
