The Childers Terrace route runs from the Rongotai Road intersection to Queens Drive. In September 2017 we asked the community for feedback on two options for this street.
The impacts on intersections, pedestrian crossings and driveways will be detailed in the next stage of design.
The sharrow markings will increase driver awareness of people on bikes. Traffic speeds would need to be reduced to improve safety. This option retains the footpaths on both sides of the road, unlike Option B.
Traffic lanes altered to both be 3.6m wide
No changes to the footpath
Approximately 15 parking spaces removed
Likely uptake by people on bikes: Low to moderate increase
The kerbside bike lane improves safety for people on bikes, and encourages less confident riders to use the route. Unlike Option A, this option requires the removal of the footpath on on the west side of the road.
Traffic lanes reduced in width from 3.6m to 2.8m
Footpath on hill side removed
About 15 parking spaces removed
Likely uptake by people on bikes: Moderate to high increase
In 2016 – following community open days, discussions with local residents and online feedback – Councillors confirmed the routes and roads that would be used to develop better biking connections.Read more
