Bike path and footpath

  • The existing shared path will be replaced with a two-way bike path (2.5–3m wide) and separated footpath (2m wide) on the harbour side of Cobham Drive. There will be a 500mm-wide buffer zone between the cycle path and the kerb.
  • People riding bikes can still choose to use the existing shoulder on the road.
  • There will be ‘pause points’ that may include seats and lighting along the route.
  • Improvements will be made to the Evans Bay Parade intersection.


  • Near the Troy Street roundabout, there will be five P180 parking spaces on the seaward side. This parking area will be away from the footpath to eliminate conflict with vehicles and improve safety.
  • Along the seawall at the Miramar end of Cobham Drive, there will be 10 fewer on-street car parks, leaving 19 spaces with a P180 limit.
