The Miramar Avenue phase 1 route runs from the intersection at Shelly Bay Road to the Tauhinu Road intersection.
Enterprise Miramar Peninsula and Council transport planners recommend that the development of Miramar Avenue should be done in two stages. Phase 1 of the plan is an off-road bike path on the Maupuia side of Miramar Avenue between Shelly Bay Road and Tauhinu Road. Traffic lights would be installed at the Tauhinu Road/Miramar Avenue intersection with a bike crossing. Submissions on this traffic resolution closed on 2 October. Councillors are likely to make decisions in November.
In September, we asked for feedback on phase 2 concepts (Tauhinu Road to Park Road). There will be another chance to comment later in 2017 or early 2018.
A two-way bike path at kerb height separates people on bikes from the traffic, and encourages less-confident riders to use the path.

Enterprise Miramar Peninsula, a group of local business people, and Wellington City Council transport planners have looked for the best ways to redevelop Miramar Avenue, while balancing the competing demands on this very busy stretch of road.
Their plan takes into account the needs of residents and businesses while enhancing the urban environment.
The plan covers lane widths, speeds, painted median strips, driveways, existing safety issues, roundabouts and bus stops.
