The agreed changes will make The Parade safer and more accessible for everyone, particularly in the narrowest areas.
The changes will provide greater separation between bikes and cars, with a continuous protected route for people on bikes and scooters between Dee and Reef streets, and encourage more people to choose low-carbon ways of getting around. Greater visibility at intersections and driveways, slightly wider traffic lanes and a consistent street layout will make it easier for drivers to negotiate The Parade, and improve the look and feel of the street.
There will be two new dual crossings at footpath level for pedestrians and people on bikes, and a new layout through the 30km/h zone will add separated bike lanes, provide more footpath space in some places and reduce vehicle speeds.
The safety changes overall will reduce the amount of street space available for parking, particularly south of the 30km/h zone where the road is narrower. Mobility parking is mostly unaffected apart from slightly relocating one space.
The agreed changes are for all the different ways people use the street.
The improvements will bring the bike lanes and related street layout in line with New Zealand and international design standards:
