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 were put forward for community feedback in September 2017.
This is an important biking connection between Seatoun, Strathmore, Miramar and Kilbirnie via the airport tunnel. It needs a solution that is appropriate for a busy through route with a lot of fast-moving traffic, including buses.
From the feedback received in September 2017, Option A (one-way bike lane on each side of the road, between the kerb and parked cars, with a raised car-door buffer) had more community support than Options B or C.

We expect this project to be progressed as future funding allows. There will be more discussion with the community and opportunities to have a say at that time.

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.
The kerbside bike path would improve safety for people on bikes, and encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Removing the central median in this option would encourage slower speeds, lowering crash risk and severity. There would be no change to footpaths, unlike Options B and C.
The bike lanes would increase driver awareness of people on bikes, but would be unlikely to encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Traffic speeds would need to be reduced to improve safety. The footpath would be narrowed, unlike Option A. The pinch points created by the traffic islands would be removed. The generous parking widths allow for a car-door buffer.
The two-way bike path would improve safety for people on bikes and encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Removing the central median in this option would encourage slower vehicle speeds, lowering crash risk and severity. The footpath would be narrowed, unlike Option A.
We 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.
