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: One-way uphill kerbside bike lane on the Tio Tio Road side

BroadwayStrathmore A
Why this option?

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.

What’s next?  

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.

Section 2: Strathmore shops to Seatoun Tunnel

 

Option A - One-way uphill kerbside bike path, Tio Tio Road side
BroadwayStrathmore A
Why Option A?

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.

Impacts
  • No changes to parking
  • Footpaths would be narrowed to 2.5m wide
  • Painted median would be narrowed
  • No trees would be removed
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: Moderate increase

 

Option B - Two-way separated bike path between footpath and parking, Tio Tio Road side
BroadwayStrathmore B
Why Option B?

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.

Impacts
  • No changes to parking
  • Footpaths would be narrowed to 2.5m wide
  • Painted median would be narrowed
  • No trees would be removed
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: High increase
