The Miramar Avenue/Ira Street route runs from the Park Road intersection to the Broadway intersection in Strathmore. There are two options for this section of road.

Any impact on bus stops, pedestrian crossings and driveways would be detailed in the next stage of design, likely in 2019-2020.

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

IraMiramarAve A

Why Option A?

The kerbside bike path would improve safety for people on bikes, and encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Removing the central median in this option would encourage slower vehicle speeds, lowering crash risk and severity. Both options would have no impact on parking or footpath widths. This would require major construction work to widen the road and put in new footpaths and kerbs.

Impacts
  • No changes to parking
  • No changes to footpath widths
  • Painted median removed
  • Some trees may have to be removed
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: High increase

 

 

Option B - Two-way separated bike path between footpath and parking on the Holy Cross School side

Why Option B?

The two-way bike path would improve safety for people on bikes and encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Both options would have no impact on parking or footpath widths. Removing the central median in this option would encourage slower vehicle speeds, lowering crash risk and severity. People in vehicles coming out of driveways would need to look out for bikes travelling in both directions. This would require major construction work to widen the road and put in new footpaths and kerbs.

Impacts
  • No changes to parking
  • No changes to footpath widths
  • Painted median removed
  • Some trees may have to be removed
  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: High increase
