Hey @AklTransport, I fixed your terrible design at Tamaki/Ngapipi, gratis.

Sorry I have just seen this. the reason for retaining the slip lane is that this is an NZTA over dimension route and the slip lane couldn't be deleted. Otherwise it would have been just like you showed. Sorry but there are some things you can't change, this is one of them. I think it turned out all right anyway.

The Quay Street Cycleway Extension is now open for people on bikes to ride safety into the city centre from east Auckland. The project extends the original two-way Quay Street Cycleway from Plumer Street, past Spark Arena, to near The Strand intersection. The 800m cycleway safely separates people on bikes from traffic and gives people walking and running their own dedicated space. AT’s Manager Walking, Cycling and Road Safety Kathryn King says the cycleway extension is an important addition to the city centre’s cycling infrastructure. “The Quay Street Cycleway is one of Auckland’s busiest. In 2017 we recorded 299,544 trips at our totem counter near the Ferry Building, and this year we are averaging 878 trips per day. The cycleway extension will encourage even more people to ride bikes, and we look forward to seeing more people giving bike riding a go as the weather improves.” The project includes a floating bus stop with pedestrian crossings across the cycleway opposite Tapora Street, and landscaping and planting has been done by Ngāti Whātua Orākei.

Hopefully Ian McKinnon won't be too long now either.

Anyone have any details on the outcomes or next steps for Nelson Street Cycleway Phase 3?

https://at.govt.nz/projects-roadwork...cleway/#phase3

Submissions closed a year ago now. I work on Market Place and have done for many years, every day i'm continually avoiding being run over by Taxis and Ubers driving northbound and coming round the blind corner at full tilt! Just a shame there is no real space for any hospo and retail down Market Place as it would make a great street to sit on.

Ian McKinnon Drive Cycleway officially opened

Minister of Transport Phil Twyford and Auckland Mayor Phil Goff officially opened the Ian McKinnon Drive Cycleway on Friday 30 November. The cycleway removes the steep climb alongside the Newton Road on-ramp up to the Newton Road bridge for people on bikes travelling to the city centre on the Northwestern Path. The route runs through Suffolk Reserve, onto Ian McKinnon Drive and up to the intersection of Upper Queen Street. From there, people on bikes can easily connect to the city centre cycleways.

For three years construction work has crowded the already busy street, creating congestion for its 14,000 daily vehicle users. On Wednesday, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to mark the project's completion.

I wish I had such great bike lanes near my house. And so it remains only to dream.

It amazes me how the council has the money the put in metal cycle parks along the footpath Beach Rd in the city, but they don't seem to have the money to fix the broken footpath.

Different budgets with different aims so aren't competing.

The frothy-at-the-mouth road rage cyclist enthusiasts here should like this:

Nelson Street Cycleway

Nelson Street Cycleway will link the Upper Queen Street bridge to Quay Street via a shared path and separated cycle lanes.

Phase 3: Market Place
Auckland Transport (AT) are proposing a new separated cycleway on Market Place.







This cycleway will improve access into and around the city centre by connecting people on bikes with the Nelson Street cycleway and to the shared path along the viaduct. This completes the city centre cycling loop where people of all ages and abilities can bike around the city centre, separated from traffic.

AT consulted with the community on this cycleway back in 2017 with most people in support.

Our proposal then also included a separated cycleway along Customs Street West and Lower Hobson Street. These routes will be considered post America’s Cup, subject to budget availability.

The changes proposed include:

A two way cycle path on one side of Market Place which will be raised and separated by a kerb
Widening the footpath by the new cycleway to 4.3 metres (from 3.5 metres)
Changing Market Place to be a one way configuration for vehicles (northbound towards the viaduct only)
Removing the car parks on one side of Market Place but replacing them on the other side by creating angled car parking
Adding new bike racks and seating areas
Adding a new pedestrian and bike crossing upon entry to Market Place (near its intersection with Pakenham Street East). This crossing will require the removal of two trees.
Adding a new raised intersection at Market Place/ Customs Street West to encourage safer vehicle speeds.
Removing a total of 5 car parks to enable the improvements. This includes 2 on Pakenham Street East, 2 on Market Place, and 1 on Customs Street West.

Have your say

That's an awesome improvement - the harder it is for cars and the easier for people on bikes, pedestrians and e-scooter users the better.

The tightening up of the intersection and zebras will make a huge difference here.

This can't come soon enough, I work along side this and that corner with cars turning from Customs into Market Place is a death trap! Looks great..

More disabled parks would be great, and the ability to access the footpath adjacent the parking space would be an added bonus.
