The Dunedin Central City Bike Hubs project is one of seven Dunedin City Council (DCC) projects from the “Shaping Future Dunedin Transport” Programme Business Case (PBC). ViaStrada worked with WSP to complete a Single-Stage Business Case (lite) to determine secure bicycle and micro-mobility parking needs and end-of-trip provision requirements and locations within the central city of Dunedin.
Work on this project included:
• An international literature review to determine three different types of bike hubs to provide secure bicycle parking and associated facilities: satellite pods, connecting hubs and major hubs.
• Public engagement to understand demand, barriers to commuting by bike and to understand what people value in regard to parking type, location, and access to end-of-trip facilities
• Identifying a range of possible bike parking sites in conjunction with stakeholders and following public engagement
• Demand and economic benefits assessments.
