Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 1 Hansard (16 February) . . Page.. 446..

2. The cycle route along the lake consists of a 4 metre shared pathway. The design for the Kingston Foreshore promenade includes a 3.0 metre wide timber boardwalk, a 4 metre promenade (predominately a pedestrian zone) and a 5 metre shared use zone (pedestrians and cyclists). The copehagen cycle route along Eyre St is 2.5 metre wide.

3. Along the Kingston Foreshore promenade, it is intended that the 5 metre shared use zone becomes the primary route for pedestrians and cyclists using the promenade. The 5 metre zone has been designed to cater for cyclists - insitu concrete paving is used and cycle stands will be provided. A 6 metre building expansion zone within the development sites along the promenade adjoins the 6 metre shared use zone and will provide capacity for outdoor cafe seating. The seating from the 6 metre building expansion zone will not extend into the 5 metre shared use zone.

4. No specific speed restrictions are proposed. It is anticipated the 5 metre wide zone on the promenade will be used by recreational cyclists wishing to access the cafes and retailing facing onto the promenade and Kingston Harbour.

5. The promenade works are presently under construction as part of the public realm landscaping and associated works at Kingston Foreshore. The first stage (the shared use path adjacent to the lake) will be completed in 2012. The promenade works will be completed progressively, in conjunction with the building development along the harbour foreshore. Completion will occur progressively during 2013 and 2014.
