    Collecting feedback on proposed motor cycle parking in Bungendore . What are your thoughts please.dot points is fine.
    Was at Bungendore show to today and was talking to a road safety officer from local council. She’s looking for feedback on the proposal to put in dedicated motorcycle parking. Some good reasons why: but we would like your view .

    1. It will optimize the efficiency of overall parking use especially in weekends when the village is impacted by both town visitors and through traffic to the bay.
    2. Kings highway is bumper to bumper a lot these days. Pulling out of parks onto this main road will be a lot safer for bikes as the bigger cars will be further back down the road...our rear vision mirrors point back in to the gutter unlike cars as we don’t park parallel. We need NOT to have to crane our necks around a 4x4 or any other vehicle that has parked close to us.
    3. Pedestrians rely on the safety islands to cross in that area. For them too they have a far better view if it is only motorbikes they have to look around.
    4. The cafe won’t miss out as there is plenty of car parking around the corner they are one and anyway most of us go to that cafe and may do so even more if we are parked outside it

    Thanks guys. Unless you say otherwise I’d like to pass on your feedback. upload_2019-1-28_15-11-53.jpeg

    I've never stopped in Bungendore on my bike, but the proposal has merits. I think it's a good idea.

    Bungendore is a popular day trip for riders from Canberra on the weekends.

    Dedicated motorcycle parking would be a plus.

    Motorcycle parking should be on hard flat surface with a minimal slope.
