Options for this section of road were put forward for community feedback in September 2017.

Option in development: One-way bike lane on each side of the road, between the kerb and parked cars, car-door buffer zone

WexfordMiramarAve A
Why this option?

From the feedback received in September 2017, this option had slightly more community support than Option B. It would provide better protection for people on bikes and be a good connection between Miramar and Strathmore Park. The proposed design is appropriate for this busy through route. 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.

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

The kerbside bike path would improve safety for people on bikes, and encourage less-confident riders to use the route.

Impacts
  • No changes to parking
  • No changes to footpaths
  • Two traffic islands (with trees) might have to be removed
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: High increase

 

Option B - One-way bike lanes between parking and traffic lane
WexfordMiramarAve B
Why Option B?

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.

Impacts
  • No changes to parking
  • No changes to footpaths
  • Two traffic islands (with trees) might have to be removed
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: Moderate increase
