Bagot Road - improving cycling
Improving safety for commuter and recreational cyclists is supported by the Darwin Regional Transport Plan and the Towards Zero Road Safety Action Plan.
The Northern Territory Government is investigating ways in which cycling safety on Bagot Road can be improved and has commissioned a planning study to improve cycling conditions including development of concept design options.
Bagot Road currently includes a shared path for cyclists and pedestrians on the outbound side of the road. However, the path varies in width and pavement quality, and crosses multiple accesses and driveways with poor visibility for both cyclists and drivers.
The planning study aims to:
- identify potential options for improved cycling infrastructure on Bagot Road
- plan for a strategic cycling route between the northern suburbs and the Stuart Highway.
Development of concept design options will take into consideration both:
- technical requirements
- community feedback.
Complete the survey and let us know your experience of using Bagot Road as a cyclist, pedestrian and/or a driver and give us your suggestions for how Bagot Road can be improved for cyclists.
Consultation is open from Wednesday 25 November to Friday 18 December 2020.
For more information and to take the survey, go to the Have Your Say website.
