At Ray Street, the North-South Cycle Superhighway continues on quiet back-streets to King’s Cross.

Quiet back-street route on Phoenix Place and Warner Street

  • Quiet back-street route for northbound and southbound cyclists along Phoenix Place and Warner Street to connect to Ray Street and Herbal Hill where northbound and southbound routes split
  • Speed cushions and round top speed humps would be removed and replaced with new flat topped raised tables to improve comfort for cyclists and reduce vehicle speeds
  • Change in priority of junction with Mount Pleasant to give priority to the North-South route for cyclists
  • Resurfacing on Warner Street to improve carriageway surface for cyclists.

Changes to parking and loading restrictions

  • Parking on Phoenix Place relocated north to allow space for new raised table. No net loss in parking
  • Remainder of parking maintained.

Pedestrian improvements
