Path widened to ac­com­mo­date cy­clists

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Victoria Park East Victoria Park -

WITH more than 3000 daily bi­cy­cle move­ments, the prin­ci­pal shared path (PSP) ad­ja­cent to the Kwinana Free­way in South Perth has been widened to four me­tres.

Com­pleted last week, the PSP is the heav­i­est traf­fick sec­tion in the met­ro­pol­i­tan area.

More than 700,000 bike move­ments are recorded on the PSP an­nu­ally, and the num­ber is grow­ing at about 7 per cent.

As well as widen­ing, a pre-cast con­crete wave de­flec­tor wall was in­stalled to help min­imise river over­flow.
