Information on the Dunedin SH1 cycleways

George W. made this Official Information request to New Zealand Transport Agency

Currently waiting for a response from New Zealand Transport Agency, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: George W.

Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,

I am writing to ask whether the following additions will be made to the Dunedin SH1 cycleway project:

- A dedicated cycle signal for crossing from the left to the right side of northbound SH1 at the intersection with Burlington St. Currently there is a sign saying to 'cross with pedestrians' and no cycle crossing lights (and frustratingly this makes it technically illegal to cross while riding — you have to walk your bike).

- Green paint treatment on the new bike/ped Barnes Dance crossings

- Any further safety improvements at the northern end of the northbound cycleway, where it merges into traffic

- Any more green paint and bike symbols, including hook turn boxes

- Directional signage

If any of these elements are not planned to be added I ask that NZTA review the decisions. The cycleways still seem unfinished when you use them.

Yours faithfully,

George Wilcox
