The Hobart Street route has two sections. There are three options for the Kedah Street to Wexford Road section and two for the Wexford Road to Miramar Avenue section. A bike path on Hobart Street could connect to Broadway in the future.
It is noted that these Hobart Street design options were developed after the final meeting of the Miramar community working group. The group did not support putting forward options for Hobart Street that would affect footpath widths, trees or parking. As Hobart Street is one of the connecting streets between Miramar and Strathmore Park, the Council felt it was important to test design options with the wider community.
Any impact on bus stops, pedestrian crossings and driveways would be detailed in the next stage of design, likely in 2019-2020.
The kerbside bike path would improve safety for people on bikes, and encourage less-confident riders to use the route.
The new lanes would increase driver awareness of people on bikes, but would be unlikely to encourage less-confident riders to use the route. The pinch points created by the traffic islands would be removed.
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
