(2) As above.

(3) Placement and type of bike racks are determined by community requests and observational needs analysis. In 2016-17 a Bike Rack Art Project was successful in engaging local entrepreneurs to design and develop new bike rack designs. Four winning designs have been manufactured and installed across town and group centres.

(4) The main feedback the ACT Government receives in relation to damage caused by bike infrastructure is in relation to bollards and banana rails rather than bike racks, or their placement or location. Roads ACT is continuing to evaluate and remove inappropriately placed bollards and banana rails, including around Lake Burley Griffin. Some complaints noted issues associated with exposed bolts on bike racks as well as bike racks blocking access in certain areas and being located too close together.

(5) In the last three years, the ACT Government has received the following requests for new bike racks:

2016-17 5 (City, Braddon, Watson, Greenway, Hall);

2015-16 10 (2 x City, 3 x Braddon, 2 x Greenway, Phillip, Mawson, Crace); and

2014-15 4 (City, Macquarie, Dickson, Lyons).

(6) Access Canberra has received 166 calls in relation to bike infrastructure since 2009. However, the majority of these matters relate to bollards and banana rails and other issues relating to safety and accidents. The ACT Government does not have data pertaining to complaints about bike racks causing damage to property.

(7) The ACT Government has not been approached in the previous three financial years to provide compensation to cyclists that have had their bikes damaged by bike racks.

(8) The 2017-18 Budget includes $20,000 for an additional 25 bike racks. These have been installed primarily in Braddon.

(9) The ACT Government has not installed additional bike racks near businesses involved in the Bike Stop program. Participating businesses have been advised to contact the ACT Government if they wish to be considered for additional bike parking. To date, none of the participating businesses have requested this.

(10) There are three Standard Galvanised U rail bike racks along Victoria Street in Hall.
