Safety around campus: Information for cyclists

Curtin University would like to remind students to take care when cycling a long 'shared' paths around Bentley Campus. Following a number of incidents involving residents of the Rowethorpe Retirement Village, located opposite Curtin University on Hayman road (near the Curtin Bus Station), police would like to raise awareness of cycle safety when riding on paths with members of the Curtin community.

Cyclists are allowed to ride on paths unless a ‘no bicycles’ sign has been erected. In the interest of safety for all users of 'shared paths', cyclists should always ride in single file and give way to pedestrians on the path at all times. Pedestrians include people walking, using motorised and non-motorised wheelchairs, and people on rollerblades and skates.

Cyclists must not ride at a speed that places other riders and pedestrians at risk. Although there is no official speed limit for bikes, it is advisable to ride in a manner appropriate to the conditions, ie: walking pace when near/around pedestrian. Some paths, under local government by-laws may have a posted speed limit.

Dumas Road Roundabout Closure

From Monday 9th May a new temporary 'left in left out' entrance into the Bentley campus from Hayman Road will become available. This will allow Greater Curtin Stage One construction to progress in other areas.

The new entrance will provide access to Brand Drive and carparks B4 and B5 only. Access to carparks B4 & B5 and Brand Drive will no longer be available via the Dumas Road roundabout entrance.

More details can be seen on the new Hayman Road Entrance map [.jpg].

Please note, the new entrance will not provide access to the southern end of campus.

Works are ongoing in this area. As a result, traffic management will be in place to ensure pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles can move through the area safely. Please slow down around construction works and follow the directions of traffic management controllers and signage.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this access change and greatly appreciate your patience and support.
