Constable Street has been considered in two sections, Riddiford Street to Coromandel Street and Coromandel Street to Alexandra Road. Both sections have two options each. 

The impacts on bus stops, intersections, pedestrian crossings and driveways will be detailed in the next stage of design and available for feedback in November.

Section 1: Riddiford Street to Coromandel Street

Option A: Kerbside bike lane uphill, downhill sharrow, parking removed one side only
ConstableRiddiford A

 

Why Option A?

The uphill kerbside bike lane improves safety for people on bikes and encourages less confident riders to use the route. The downhill sharrow markings increase driver awareness of people on bikes. This option has a higher cost than Option B, however the likely uptake by people on bikes is similar.

Impacts
  • Approximately 54 parking spaces removed on the northern side of the road

  • Bike lane protected by raised buffer
  • Footpath reduced in width from 2.4m to 2.0m on both sides

  • Vehicle lanes width increases from 3.0m to 3.2m

  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: Low to moderate increase

 

Option B: Sharrow markings on both lanes, parking retained both sides

Why Option B?

Sharrow markings increase driver awareness of people on bikes, but unlikely to encourage less confident riders to use the route. This option retains more parking than Option A. This option has a lower cost than Option A, however the likely uptake by people on bikes is similar.

Impacts
  • No changes to parking

  • Footpath reduced in width from 2.4m to 2.0m width on both sides

  • Vehicle lanes width increases from 3.0m to 3.1m

  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: Low increase
