Bike path and footpath

  • The existing shared path will be replaced with a two-way bike path (2.5–3m) and separated footpath (2m) on the harbour side of Cobham Drive. There will be a 0.5m buffer zone between the cycle path and the kerb.
  • People riding bikes can still use the existing shoulder on the road.
  • There will be ‘pause points’ that may include seats and lighting along the route.
  • Improvements will be made to the Evans Bay Parade intersection.


  • By the Troy Street roundabout, we plan to provide five parking spaces with a P180 limit so that more people can access the area for recreation. We will also relocate the parking area away from the footpath to eliminate conflict with vehicles and improve safety.
  • Along the seawall area at the Miramar end of Cobham Drive, we plan to reduce the number of on-street car parks by 10. We plan to provide 19 spaces with a P180 limit so more people can access the area for recreation.
