7.2 Width Calculator

There are three basic elements that determine the width of a cycle lane or track, A, B, and C below.

  • The space to the left of the cyclist;
  • The space required to support the cycling regime (two-abreast, single file, overtaking etc)
  • The space to the right of the cyclist.

In addition, there may be additional width required depending on:

  • Topography, traffic, locality etc.

The table below provides a simplified means of determining the actual width required for cycle lanes and tracks. Standard wobble is already built into the values in the table.
