The Ira Street and Miramar Avenue route goes between the intersection of Ira Street and Broadway in Strathmore and the Park Road intersection on Miramar Avenue.
Two options for this route were put forward for community feedback in September 2017.
From the feedback received in September 2017, this option had more community support than Option B and would be appropriate for this relatively quiet street.
A bike path at footpath-level may be possible in the long term but would involve high costs of laying new kerbs and moving stormwater drains and pipes.
We are likely to develop a design for a kerbside bike lane at road level that would include a raised buffer for people to park against, and to get in and out of cars.

We expect this project to be progressed as future funding allows.

The Ira Street and Miramar Avenue route goes between the Broadway intersection in Strathmore and the Park Road intersection in Miramar Avenue. There are two options for this route.
Any impact on bus stops, pedestrian crossings and driveways would be detailed in the next stage of design.
The kerbside bike path would improve safety for people on bikes, and encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Removing the central median would encourage slower vehicle speeds, reducing crash risk and severity. This option would require major construction work to widen the road and put in new footpaths and kerbs.
The two-way bike path would improve safety for people on bikes and encourage less-confident riders to use the route. Removing the central median would encourage slower vehicle speeds, reducing crash risk and severity. People in vehicles coming out of driveways would need to look out for bikes travelling in both directions. This option would require major construction work to widen the road and put in new footpaths and kerbs.
We received feedback from the community about this project. Click here to view the summary graphs.
In 2016 – following community open days, discussions with local residents and online feedback – Councillors confirmed the routes and roads that would be used to develop better biking connections.
