A new, 40-space secure bike shed is under construction at Gosford Train Station, according to the NSW Member for Terrigal, Mr Adam Crouch.
The new Opal bike shed at Gosford station is expected to be completed shortly before Christmas. “With more locals taking up cycling, I am delighted that we can now offer people the option to leave the car at home and ride their bike to our major public transport connection,” Mr Crouch said. “We know that some customers enjoy riding to the station before starting their daily commute and this bike shed will help make the journey for customers travelling to Gosford Station that little bit easier,” he said.
“The new bike shed is being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program which is an initiative to deliver safe, modern and accessible transport infrastructure across the state. “Using the new bike shed will be free and simple. “All customers need to do is link their Opal card through the bike lockers’ website and they’ll have access to any of the Opal bike sheds on the train network. “These facilities are being delivered under the Bike and Ride initiative, which is part of Sydney’s Cycling Future, our plan to make bike riding a more convenient transport option,” Mr Crouch said. Opal bike sheds are available at Woy Woy station and at several Sydney stations, with new sheds to be delivered at Hornsby, Penrith and Redfern in 2017. Customers can register their Opal card for bike shed access or fi nd the most convenient bike shed at bikelockers.com.au.
