Hoppers Crossing and Aircraft commuters will now be able to use Parkiteer bike parking, following the completion of two new cages.
As part of the Level Crossing Removal Project, Aircraft Station has gained a new 26-space Parkiteer cage alongside a road bridge featuring a pedestrian walkway and dedicated bike lanes, and a new road connection to maintain access to the nearby Royal Australian Air Force base.
Aircraft Station platforms are also now accessible from the north and south of the rail line through the new underpass, ramps and stairs.
Hoppers Crossing Station
A second Parkiteer has been added to the upgraded Hoppers Crossing Station as part of the Level Crossing Removal Project.
A busy level crossing on Old Geelong Road has been removed, with a new overpass at Hoppers Crossing Station providing a safer connection over the rail line for pedestrians and cyclists.
It is a welcome addition as the first Hoppers Crossing Parkiteer is one of the state's largest and busiest. The second Parkiteer has 26 premium bike parking spaces, and will help meet the growing demand for secure bike parking at the station.
More Parkiteers to come
There have been a few new Parkiteers opened since the beginning of the year, with several more in the pipeline for 2022 as part of the Level Crossing Removal Project and various station upgrades.
Parkiteer is free to use. Visit parkiteer.com.au to register and find your nearest Parkiteer bike parking cage.
