The Queens Drive route runs from Childers Terrace and connects to the Leonie Gill Pathway. There are two options for this road.

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

Option A - Kerbside two- way bike path on one side, no parking
QueensDrive A  
  
Why Option A?

The kerbside bike lane improves safety for people on bikes, and encourages less confident riders to use the route. Traffic speeds will reduce due to narrower traffic lanes and this will improve safety. This option requires removing more parking than Option B.

Impacts
  • Parking retained on east side of street

  • Bike lane protected by raised buffer
  • Current footpath widths retained

  • Traffic lanes reduced in width from 3.6m to 3.0m

  • About 33 parking spaces removed on the west side of the street

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

 

Option B - Bike lane on both side of the road, kerbside on one side, parking on one side

QueensDrive B

  
Why Option B?

The kerbside bike lane improves safety for people on bikes, and encourages less confident riders to use the route. Traffic speeds will reduce due to narrower traffic lanes and this will improve safety. The bike lane on the east side of the street will increase driver awareness of people on bikes. Less parking is removed in this option compared with Option A.

Impacts
  • Bike lane protected by raised buffer
  • Current footpath widths retained

  • Traffic lanes reduced in width from 3.6m to 3.0m

  • About 12 parking spaces removed on the east side of the street

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