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.
From the feedback received in September 2017, this option had more community support than Option B. A footpath-level bike path may be possible in the long-term but would involve the high costs of laying new kerbs and repositioning stormwater drains and pipes. Instead we are likely to develop a design for a kerbside bike lane at road level that would include a raised buffer for people to park against, and to get in and out of cars.

We expect this project to be progressed as future funding allows, likely in 2019-2020.

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.
The kerbside uphill bike path would improve safety for people on bikes, and encourage less-confident riders to use the route. People on bikes travelling downhill from the tunnel would have to use the traffic lane.
The two-way bike path would improve safety for people on bikes and encourage less-confident riders to use the route. People in vehicles coming out of driveways would need to look out for bikes travelling in both directions.
We have received feedback from the community about this project. Click here to view the summary graphs.
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
