There are two parts of Wilson Street, the one way section and the two way section. Both parts have two options each.

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

 

Two-way - Daniell Street to Coromandel Street

Wilson2way 0Existing 

  
Option A - Bike lane both sides of the road, parking retained on one side
WilsonStreet2way A 
  
Why Option A?

The new bike lane will increase driver awareness of people on bikes. Traffic speeds will reduce due to narrower traffic lanes and this will improve safety. This is a compromised design to retain parking, with minimum separation between parked cars and the bike lane. This option removes more parking than Option C, and the same as Option B. This option has a higher cost than Option C, however the likely uptake by people on bikes is similar.

Impacts
  • Footpaths narrowed from 2.2m to 1.8m

  • Approximately 42 parking space removed on south side of the road

  • No changes to existing driveways

  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: Moderate increase

 

Option B - Uphill bike lane, shared lane downhill

WilsonStreet2way B

  
Why Option B?

The new uphill bike lane and sharrow markings in the downhill lane will increase driver awareness of people on bikes. Traffic speeds will reduce due to narrower traffic lanes and this will improve safety. This is a compromised design to retain parking, with minimum separation between parked cars and the bike lane. This option removes more parking than Option C, and the same as Option A. This option has a higher cost than Option C, however the likely uptake by people on bikes is similar.

Impacts
  • No footpath changes

  • Approximately 42 parking space removed on south side of the road

  • No changes to existing driveways

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

 

Option C - Sharrow markings on both sides of the road

WilsonStreet2way c

Why Option C?

The sharrow markings will increase driver awareness of people on bikes. Traffic speeds will reduce due to narrower traffic lanes and this will improve safety. This option retains parking on both sides of the street. This option has a lower cost than options A and B, however the likely uptake by people on bikes is similar.

Impacts
  • No footpath changes

  • No changes to parking

  • No changes to existing driveways

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