Completed: Bike lanes on both sides of the road with a car door buffer

The bike lanes provide a connection with Evans Bay Parade, Te Whiti Street, and to Newtown via Crawford Road. The connection will go through to the airport tunnel and Leonie Gill Pathway when new bike paths are built on Coutts Street and Tirangi Road.

Between Onepu Road and Te Whiti Street, the new kerbside bike lanes (next to the footpath) on both sides of Rongotai Road give better protection for people on bikes along this busy route, which has a lot of fast-moving traffic. View the details of what we're building.

In the section of Rongotai Road at the town centre (between Crawford Road and Onepu Road), for now we are considering making minor improvements at the Onepu Road intersection. Read more about this section

 

Traffic resolution and project approval

Decisions after community feedback

Outside town centre - Kerbside bike lane on each side of the road, parking retained on both sides. This option had more community support than Option B. It gives better protection for people on bikes, and is appropriate for a busy through route such as Rongotai Road, which has a lot of fast-moving traffic. Read the summary of feedback(PDF 265KB)
