The route for this section of Evan Bay Parade runs from the Cobham Drive intersection to Rongotai Road. There are three options for this section of road.

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.

Option A - Kerbside bike path on both sides of the road, parking one side

EvansBay A

Why Option A?

The kerbside bike lane improves safety for people on bikes, and encourages less confident riders to use the route. More parking would need to be removed than in options B and C. Traffic speeds could be maintained as they are now.

Impacts
  • Eastern footpath (St Patrick’s College side) reduced in width from 3.7m to 2.0m

  • Traffic lanes reduced in width from 3.9m to 3m

  • Approximately 27 parking spaces removed on the east side of the road

  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: Moderate to high increase

     

Option B - Bike lane both sides of the road

EvansBay B

  
Why Option B?

The new bike lanes will increase driver awareness of people on bikes. Traffic speeds will reduce due to narrower traffic lanes and this will improve safety. No parking would need to be removed, unlike Option A.

Impacts
  • Eastern footpath (St Patrick’s College side) reduced in width from 3.7m to 2.0m

  • No change to parking

  • Traffic lanes reduced in width from 3.9m to 3m

  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: Moderate increase

 

Option C - Kerbside bike path on both sides of the road, parking both sides

EvansBay C

Why Option C?

The kerbside bike lane improves safety for people on bikes, and encourages less confident riders to use the route. No parking would need to be removed, unlike Option A. Traffic speeds will reduce due to narrower traffic lanes and this will improve safetyThis is a compromised design to retain parking, with minimum separation between parked cars and the bike lane.

Impacts
  • No changes to footpath

  • No change to parking

  • Traffic lanes reduced in width from 3.9m to 3m

  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: Moderate to high increase
