Cycle parking planning and design

Published: | Category: Walking & cycling , Planning, design, funding, building, maintenance of the transport network , Guidance for specialists | Audience: General

This guidance summarises best practice provision of parking and end-of-trip facilities for people who cycle. This augments advice in the Cycling Network Guidance.

Note that New Zealand does not have a cycle parking standard and the Australian Standard AS2890.3 Bicycle Parking Facilities has substantial gaps.

For additional information, readers are encouraged to refer to the Austroads research report Bicycle Parking Facilities: Guidelines for Design and Installation(external link).


The guidance was compiled by ViaStrada Limited (project lead, John Lieswyn), Abley Limited, and Bikes Welcome Incorporated, with peer review by the Active Modes Infrastructure Group.
