Bicycle Network opened three new Parkiteer facilities as part of the Level Crossing Removal Project on Mt Derrimut Road and the Hurstbridge line duplication projects between October and December last year.
Deer Park Station
The opening of the Deer Park station saw the removal of the 68th level crossing at Mt Derrimut Road. The station boasts an air-conditioned waiting room, a multi-bay bus interchange and a 60-space Parkiteer facility (our largest yet).
Because of its size, and in response to customer feedback, the new larger Parkiteer facility has been designed with dual entrances and exits to facilitate the flow of bike traffic during peak times.
Greensborough and Montmorency stations
New stations built at Greensborough and Montmorency, and a 2km rail duplication of the track between them, aim to reduce crowding on peak trains at these busy locations.
Both stations have a Parkiteer facility each, offering a combined total of 52 secure bike parking stations.
A new shared user path will provide safe and easy access, linking the Plenty River Trail and station forecourts.
The future of Parkiteer
The Parkiteer network is expected to grow and improve as transport projects and upgrades continue across Victoria. New and upgraded Parkiteer facilities are planned at Glen Huntly, Hampton, Thornbury and Cranbourne stations.
Parkiteer is free. Visit parkiteer.com.au to register and find your nearest available Parkiteer bike parking facility.
Parkiteer users must register for a home facility. Requests for access to any additional facilities will need to be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
