Cycling

City of Prospect is cycle-friendly

Council has, for many years now, held the belief that cycling as a form of transport has many benefits and should be encouraged. From improved health, to easing of congestion, and less pollution, cycling is a great way to move around in City of Prospect, and Council has taken steps to ensure it always will be.

Bike Sharrows

Linemarking has been undertaken on Devonport Terrace, Prospect, between Pym Street and Torrens Road, as requested by the Department of Planning Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI).

The marking consists of symbols called 'bicycle sharrows’ which is a bicycle logo with two chevrons or arrows painted above it.
