We are proposing a short section of bike path through Post Office Square so people can ride from Customhouse Quay to Jervois Quay and Queens Wharf. The path would be inside the bollards beside the road on a small width of the paved area. At present, people biking towards the waterfront and Jervois Quay cannot ride through Post Office Square because of the one-way restriction on the traffic lane and the pedestrian-only restriction in the square. However, a survey in May during the evening peak recorded 49 people riding across Jervois Quay from Post Office Square, either towards Queens Wharf or onto Jervois Quay.

Post Office Square bike lane

We propose to install a 1.5m-wide bike path along the edge of Post Office Square, between Customhouse Quay and Jervois Quay.

Post Office Square

 
Why this solution?

The short section of path will mean people on bikes can ride across to the waterfront from Customhouse Quay.

Impacts:
  • The bike path would be installed along the edge of Post Office Square, inside the bollards. The path will not be green but could be marked with a white line.
  • Improved ramps for people walking and biking on both sides of Jervois Quay, and at the eastern end of Post Office Square.
  • More crossing buttons for pedestrians and people on bikes.
