The Miramar Avenue phase 2 route runs from the Tauhinu Road intersection to the Park Road roundabout. We asked for feedback on 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.

MiramarAvePhase2 0Existing

 

Option A - Separate one-way bike paths on each side of Miramar Avenue, between parking and traffic lane, car-door buffer zone
MiramarAvePhase2 A
 
Why Option A?

This option would work well for less-confident people on bikes who prefer slow-speed, off-road cycling. Narrowing the street would provide an opportunity to enhance the landscape along Miramar Avenue. Traffic signals at Tauhinu Road, if required following a safety audit and further traffic modelling, would likely improve safety for people on bikes while keeping traffic flowing through the intersection. Restricting right-turns out of property driveways would help traffic flow.

 
Impacts
  • About 5 parking spaces would be removed
  • A few trees may have to be removed to allow room for new paths and bus stops
  • Traffic lanes narrow to 3.25m
  • Combination of raised and painted median
  • Some right turns out of driveways might be controlled; two driveways might close
  • 2m-wide footpaths on both sides of the road
  • Landscaping enhanced with new lights, plants and seats

 

Option B - Two-way bike path between footpath and parking on the Maupuia side of Miramar Avenue

MiramarAvePhase2 B 

Why Option B?

This option would work reasonably well for less-confident riders who prefer slow speeds. Narrowing the street would provide an opportunity to enhance the landscape along Miramar Avenue. Traffic signals at Tauhinu Road, if required following a safety audit and further traffic modelling, would likely improve safety for people on bikes while keeping traffic flowing through the intersection. This option would connect directly to the Cobham Drive two-way bike path and Evans Bay Parade route. 

Impacts
  • About 10 parking spaces would be removed
  • A few trees may have to be removed to allow room for new paths and bus stops
  • Traffic lanes to narrow to 2.75m with a 750mm shoulder
  • Traffic islands and painted median removed
  • Some right turns into driveways might be controlled, two driveways might close
  • 2m-wide footpaths on both sides of the road
  • Landscaping enhanced with new lights, plants and seats
