Two options for this section of road were put forward for community feedback in September 2017.
From the two options that went out for feedback, neither was a clear favourite. This section is reliant on additional funding, so both options (one-way lanes on each side or a wider two-way bike path on the Park Road side) remain possibilities in the future.

We will continue to discuss and progress this with Enterprise Miramar Peninsula and the community, but the project is unlikely to proceed in the next few years. If and when funding becomes available, there will be another opportunity to provide feedback before Councillors make any decisions.

Any impact on bus stops, pedestrian crossings and driveways would be detailed in the next stage of design.
This option would work well for less-confident people on bikes who prefer slow-speed, off-road cycling. Narrowing the street would provide an opportunity to enhance the landscape along Miramar Avenue. Traffic signals at Tauhinu Road, if required following a safety audit and further traffic modelling, would likely improve safety for people on bikes while keeping traffic flowing through the intersection. Restricting right-turns out of property driveways would help traffic flow.
This option would work reasonably well for less-confident riders who prefer slow speeds. Narrowing the street would provide an opportunity to enhance the landscape along Miramar Avenue. Traffic signals at Tauhinu Road, if required following a safety audit and further traffic modelling, would likely improve safety for people on bikes while keeping traffic flowing through the intersection. This option would connect directly to the Cobham Drive two-way bike path and Evans Bay Parade route.
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.
