The Broadway route has two sections; Miro Street (shared path under the airport runway) to Strathmore shops has three options and Strathmore shops to Seatoun tunnel has two options.

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

Section 1: Miro Street to Strathmore shops

Option A - One-way bike paths between kerb and parking (at footpath level), car-door buffer zone
BroadwayMiro A
Why Option A?

The kerbside bike path improves safety for people on bikes, and encourages less-confident riders to use the route. Removing the central median in this option encourages slower speeds, lowering crash risk and severity. There is no change to footpaths, unlike Options B and C.

Impacts
  • Remove central painted median strip and traffic islands with trees
  • No change to footpaths
  • Some parking may have to be removed to install turning bays
  • Some bus stops will need to be moved
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: High increase

 

Option B - One-way bike lanes between parking and traffic lane, car-door buffer zone

BroadwayMiro B

Why Option B?

The bike lanes will increase driver awareness of people on bikes, but are unlikely to encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Traffic speeds will need to be reduced to improve safety. The footpath is narrowed, unlike Option A. The pinch points created by the traffic islands are removed. The generous parking widths allow for a car-door buffer zone.

Impacts
  • Remove central painted median strip and traffic islands with trees
  • Footpaths narrow to 2.5m
  • Some parking may have to be removed to install turning bays
  • Some bus stops will need to be moved
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: Moderate increase

 

Option C - Two-way separated bike path between footpath and parking

BroadwayMiro C

Why Option C?

The two-way bike path improves safety for people on bikes, and encourages less-confident riders to use the route. Removing the central median in this option encourages slower speeds, lowering crash risk and severity. The footpath is narrowed, unlike Option A.

Impacts
  • Remove central painted median strip and traffic islands with trees
  • Footpaths narrow to 2.5m
  • Some parking may have to be removed to install turning bays
  • Some bus stops will need to be moved
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: High increase
