Motorcycle bus lane signs to be removed

24 Jun 2020

Road signs permitting motorcyclists to ride in selected bus lanes around Perth will be removed from this week.

A trial allowing motorcycle riders to share the bus lanes concluded that there are no safety benefits, and that poor visibility and line of sight of motorcyclists posed a road safety risk.

The ‘shared’ bus lane signs will be removed from the following routes:

  • Fitzgerald St
  • Beaufort St
  • South Street
  • Ranford Road
  • Albany Highway
The State Government is committed to improving the safety of motorcyclists, including ongoing research and education through the WA Centre for Road Safety Research, enhancements to the motorcycle graduated rider licencing program and support of the national motorcycle clothing testing program, MotoCAP.
 
Motorcyclists need to be aware that a $100 infringement and 3 demerit points apply to drivers of vehicles using bus lanes illegally, as stated in the Road Traffic Code 2000.
