Interim separated pathway separators

Background

ViaStrada was commissioned to undertake an investigation of possible separation devices for protected pathways that are intended to be "temporary" (i.e. a lifespan of 3 to 5 years before more substantive facilities are introduced). ViaStrada defined several criteria: temporary; level of service for people who cycle; attractive in appearance; and high value for money for ratepayers. A number of devices were identified and assessed according to these criteria, with recommendations and possible applications outlined in a report.

These devices included:

  • Shared path fencing
  • Concrete jersey barriers
  • Plastic jersey barriers
  • Rubber separation kerbs
  • Bollards and flexiposts
  • Planter boxes
Planter boxes separating cycle lane
