Bike Rack Parklet, Newcastle

by | Aug 2, 2013 | Australia, Transport

This parklet installation in Newcastle is a fun way to demonstrate that up to 10 bicycles can take up the same space as 1 car and to encourage people to adopt cycling as a practical form of transport.

The designer of the bike rack parklet was Bernie Hockings, an active local cyclist involved with the Newcastle CBD cycling scene.  The cost of the construction was funded by Newcastle NOW, who also meet any installation and ongoing costs.
