We will be putting in a short section of bike path through Post Office Square so people can ride from Customhouse Quay to Jervois Quay and Queens Wharf. The path will be beside the road on a small width of the paved area, and clearly defined.
At present, people biking towards the waterfront and Jervois Quay are restricted in how they can get through Post Office Square because of the one-way restriction on the traffic lane and the pedestrian-only restriction in the square. However, a survey in May 2017 during the evening peak recorded 49 people riding across Jervois Quay from Post Office Square, either towards Queens Wharf or onto Jervois Quay.
Changes will be made on this side of Post Office Square to make riding to the waterfront easier.
We plan to install the new section of lane in late 2018.
