Proposed changes

The existing cycle lane on Browns Bay Road ends at its intersection with Beach Road. We propose to extend the cycle lane through to Knights Road.

This extension of the cycle lane will be 1.8m wide, separated by a newly painted buffer. The flush median will be repainted to reflect the changes in width.

Anti-skid red strips will be added at both approaches to the S-bend near 121 and 102 Browns Bay Road. These strips are designed to alert drivers with a visual and rumble effect to encourage slower speeds along the bend.

Additionally, we are changing the advisory speed to ‘35km/h’ on the chevron boards to advise drivers of the appropriate speed along the bend.

Why changes are needed

These changes will increase safety for cyclists along this stretch of road.

Extending the cycle lane until Knights Road will provide even better accessibility for people on bikes along Browns Bay Road.
