1.5 Width

In this manual, there are only two possible positions for cycling along roads and streets:

  1. Mixed Traffic – cyclists are in front or behind vehicles in a controlled speed environment;
  2. Cycling Lanes or Tracks – cyclists are beside vehicles in their own space.

In either situation:

  1. The expected position of the cyclist should be legible to all road users;
  2. There must be sufficient width for cycling.

If there is not sufficient space for a functional cycle lane as set out below, then a Mixed Traffic solution should be considered with an appropriate traffic regime. In other words, a substandard cycle lane is never recommended.
