We will be putting in 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 will be beside the road on a small width of the paved area, and clearly defined.

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 2017 during the evening peak recorded 49 people riding across Jervois Quay from Post Office Square, either towards Queens Wharf or onto Jervois Quay.

 Changes will be made on this side of Post Office Square to make riding to the waterfront easier.

What's changing

  • A 1.5-metre wide bike path will be installed along the edge of the square, inside the bollards. The path will not be green but will be clearly defined.
  • Improved ramps will be provided for people walking and biking on both sides of Jervois Quay, and at the eastern end of the square.
  • There will be crossing buttons for pedestrians and people on bikes on Customhouse Quay and Jervois Quay.

  • Councillors approved the proposal in late November 2017.
  • We plan to install the new section of lane in the first half of 2018.
