Rugby Street Bikeway Improvements

Council is inviting the community to provide feedback on a proposal to improve the bikeway along Rugby Street and Eynesbury Avenue in Kingswood by 5pm Friday 22 December 2017. 

What is the Belair to City Bikeway? 

The State Government has allocated $6.5 million funding over four years to complete Greenways and Bicycle Boulevards across Adelaide to increase and promote cycling within the community. The funding commenced in 2015/2016 financial year and has enabled the installation of upgraded bicycle facilities in various locations across the metropolitan area.

Based on recommendations contained in the Local Government Association of South Australia’s Cycling Strategy, the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) has identified the Belair to City Bikeway as their number one priority for upgrade and funding within the City of Mitcham due to the large number of cyclists using the route and its potential to attract additional cyclists. 

Much of the Belair to City Bikeway has already been established within the Adelaide City and Unley Council areas. In Mitcham, the southern end of the bikeway route utilises the Lynton Trail and is therefore in place. 

In the Unley Council area the bikeway runs down Rugby Street to its intersection with Cross Road where DPTI recently installed a signalised bicycle and pedestrian crossing to provide a direct link across to Rugby Street. 

It is now proposed to extend the bikeway along Rugby Street and Eynesbury Avenue to connect Cross Road and Belair Road at the signalised pedestrian crossing just south of Eynesbury Avenue. 

What Changes are Proposed? 

In keeping with the treatment along other sections of the Belair to City Bikeway it is proposed to install bicycle related signs, pavement markings and contrasting pavement treatments at the intersections along the route.

What are the Benefits? 

The bikeway will provide a safer, more visible and predictable riding environment; better control of crossing points to reduce potential traffic conflicts; and use of streets with lower traffic volumes and slower traffic speeds to benefit cyclists and other road users.
