There are two parts of Wilson Street, the one way section and the two way section. The one way section has two options and the two way section has three options.

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

One-way section - Riddiford Street to Daniell Street

Option A - Sharrow markings in traffic lane and contraflow bike lane on one side only
WilsonStreet1way A
  
Why Option A?

This option provides an improved route east (towards Kilbirnie) for people on bikes. The sharrow markings increase driver awareness of people on bikes. More parking is removed in this option than Option B. This option has a higher cost than Option B, however the likely uptake by people on bikes is the same.

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

  • Traffic lane increases from 3.2m to 3.5m

  • About 15 parking spaces removed on south side

  • No changes to existing driveways

  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: Moderate increase

 

Option B - Sharrow markings, cycling one way only.

WilsonStreet1way B

  
Why Option B?

Sharrow markings increase driver awareness of people on bikes, but are unlikely to encourage less confident riders to use the route. People cycling towards Newtown would use Constable Street. 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 the same.

Impacts
  • No changes to footpath

  • No changes to parking

  • No changes to existing driveways

  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: Moderate increase
