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

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

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 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. Both options have no impact on parking or on 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 improves safety for people on bikes, and encourages less-confident riders to use the route. Both options have no impact on parking or footpath widths. Removing the central median in this option encourages slower speeds, lowering crash risk and severity. People in vehicles who are coming out of driveways will need to look out for bikes coming both ways. 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
