The Park Road route runs from Miramar Avenue to the roundabout at Miramar North Road. Two options for this section of road 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

ParkRoad 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.

Instead 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.

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

 

Option A - One-way bike paths between kerb and parking (at footpath level), car-door buffer zone

 ParkRoad A

Why Option A?

The kerbside bike paths would improve safety for people on bikes and encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Both options would have no impact on parking, footpaths or trees.

Impacts
  • No changes to parking
  • No changes to footpaths
  • No trees removed
  • Traffic lanes reduced in width from 4m to 3m
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: High increase

 

Option B - One-way bike lanes between parking and traffic lane, car-door buffer zone

 

Why Option B?

ParkRoad B

The on-road lanes would increase driver awareness of people on bikes, but would be unlikely to encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Both options would have no impact on parking, footpaths or trees.

Impacts
  • No changes to parking
  • No changes to footpaths
  • No trees removed
  • Traffic lanes reduced in width from 4m to 3m
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: Moderate increase
