The Broadway route has two sections: Miro Street (via the shared path under the airport runway) to Strathmore shops; and Strathmore shops to Seatoun Tunnel. Options for this section of road were put forward for community feedback in September 2017.

Option likely to be developed: No decisions have been made

Why hasn't a decision been made?

This is an important biking connection between Seatoun, Strathmore, Miramar and Kilbirnie via the airport tunnel. It needs a solution that is appropriate for a busy through route with a lot of fast-moving traffic including buses.

From the feedback received in September 2017, Option A (one-way bike lane on each side of the road, between the kerb and parked cars, with a raised car-door buffer) had more community support than Options B or C.

What’s next?  

We expect this project to be progressed as future funding allows, likely in 2019-2020. There will be more discussion with the community and opportunities to have a say at that time.

The Broadway route has two sections: Miro Street (via the shared path under the airport runway) to Strathmore shops (three options); and Strathmore shops to Seatoun Tunnel (two options).

Any impact on bus stops, pedestrian crossings and driveways would be detailed in the next stage of design, likely in 2019-2020.

 

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

The kerbside bike path would improve safety for people on bikes, and encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Removing the central median in this option would encourage slower speeds, lowering crash risk and severity. There would be no change to footpaths, unlike Options B and C.

Impacts
  • Remove central painted median strip and traffic islands with trees
  • No change to footpaths
  • Some parking may have to be removed to install turning bays
  • Some bus stops would need to be moved
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: High increase

 

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

The bike lanes would increase driver awareness of people on bikes, but would be unlikely to encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Traffic speeds would need to be reduced to improve safety. The footpath would be narrowed, unlike Option A. The pinch points created by the traffic islands would be removed. The generous parking widths allow for a car-door buffer.

Impacts
  • Remove central painted median strip and traffic islands with trees
  • Footpaths narrow to 2.5m wide
  • Some parking may have to be removed to install turning bays
  • Some bus stops would need to be moved
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: Moderate increase

 

Option C - Two-way separated bike path between footpath and parking
BroadwayMiro C
Why Option C?

The two-way bike path would improve safety for people on bikes and encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Removing the central median in this option would encourage slower vehicle speeds, lowering crash risk and severity. The footpath would be narrowed, unlike Option A.

Impacts
  • Remove central painted median strip and traffic islands with trees
  • Footpaths narrow to 2.5m wide
  • Some parking may have to be removed to install turning bays
  • Some bus stops would need to be moved
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: High increase
