The proposed solution is for the whole of Crawford Road from the intersection of Alexandra Road to Rongotai Road.

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

Crawford 0Existing

Option A: Sharrow markings on downhill traffic lane, kerbside uphill bike lane, parking one side only
Crawford A 
Why Option A?

The uphill kerbside bike lane improves safety for people on bikes and encourages less confident riders to use the route. The downhill sharrow markings increase driver awareness of people on bikes.

  • Current footpath width retained on east side of road

  • Uphill bike lane protected by raised buffer
  • Sections of footpath on the western side may need to be removed

  • Traffic lanes increased in width from 3.6m to 3.9m

  • The existing flush median is removed over the majority of the road

  • Approximately 43 parking spaces removed from west side of the road

  • Parking retained on east side

  • Likely uptake by people on bikes: Moderate to high increase
