To facilitate physical distancing and enable alternative travel / active travel options.

Type of Infrastructure:

Convert existing advisory uni-directional cycle lanes on Cambridge Street to a mandatory 3.0m wide two-way cycle lane on the western side. Install soft segregation to protect the cycle lane by using Zicla Zebra and bolt down bollards.  Proposal is to install a 200mm wide mandatory white line and rearrange the existing parking and loading facilities

Disabled Bays

It is proposed to relocate x1 disabled bay from the west side of Cambridge Street before Renfrew Street, to a position approximately 30m east of Cambridge Street on Renfrew Street.

Loading & Servicing

No loading bays are proposed to be relocated.

Metered parking

Parking provision is to be retained although it is proposed to mark the parking bays using lining.

Residential Parking

As above it is not proposed to reduce the available parking space although it is proposed to mark the parking bays using lining.

General Traffic

The temporary cycle lanes proposed as part of the Spaces for People initiative have been designed to take cognisance of the forthcoming Underline project as part of the Avenues programme. As such it is proposed to reduce Cambridge Street to 1 lane in each direction. The full width of available carriageway for vehicles will be 6.5m.
