The Ira Street and Miramar Avenue route goes between the intersection of Ira Street and Broadway in Strathmore and the Park Road intersection on Miramar Avenue.

Two options for this route were put forward for community feedback in September 2017.

Option likely to be developed: One-way bike lane on each side of the road, between the kerb and parked cars, raised car-door buffer zone

IraMiramarAve A
Why this option?

From the feedback received in September 2017, this option had more community support than Option B and would be appropriate for this relatively quiet street.

A bike path at footpath-level may be possible in the long term but would involve high costs of laying new kerbs and moving stormwater drains and pipes.

We are likely to develop a design for a kerbside bike lane at road level that would include a raised buffer for people to park against, and to get in and out of cars.

The Ira Street and Miramar Avenue route goes between the Broadway intersection in Strathmore and the Park Road intersection in Miramar Avenue. There are two options for this route.

Any impact on bus stops, pedestrian crossings and driveways would be detailed in the next stage of design.

 

Option A - One-way bike lane on each side, between kerb and parking (at footpath level), car-door buffer zone
IraMiramarAve A
Why Option A?

The kerbside bike path would improve safety for people on bikes, and encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Removing the central median would encourage slower vehicle speeds, reducing crash risk and severity. This option would require major construction work to widen the road and put in new footpaths and kerbs.

Impacts
  • No changes to parking
  • No changes to footpath widths
  • Painted median removed
  • Some trees may have to be removed
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: High increase

 

 

Option B - Two-way separated bike path between footpath and parking on the Holy Cross School side

IraMiramarAve B 

Why Option B?

The two-way bike path would improve safety for people on bikes and encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Removing the central median would encourage slower vehicle speeds, reducing crash risk and severity. People in vehicles coming out of driveways would need to look out for bikes travelling in both directions. This option would require major construction work to widen the road and put in new footpaths and kerbs.

Impacts
  • No changes to parking
  • No changes to footpath widths
  • Painted median removed
  • Some trees may have to be removed
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: High increase
