Why this solution?

This was a low-cost way to make interim safety improvements for people on bikes along part of Thorndon Quay.

  • Bike lanes painted on the road between the parking and traffic on both sides of the road between Davis Street and Mulgrave Street.
  • Bike lanes varying in width from 1.6m to 2.4m.
  • All angle parking on the Westpac Stadium side  changed to parallel parking.
  • 45 parallel car parks on this side of the street (reduced from the 97 spaces currently provided).
  • The removal of 11 parallel car parks outside the city end of Capital Gateway. 
  • All 10 hour parking changed to 6 hours.
  • No changes to parking on the western side.
  • Traffic lanes narrowed to 3.5m, except where they are already narrower.
  • The painted median strip shifted slightly with minor changes in width.
  • Retaining the morning peak citybound clearway.
