As part of its Urban Cycleways programme, Tauranga City Council is proposing to extend the cycleway along Fraser Street, between 18th Avenue and 11th Avenue. The aim of the Urban Cycleways programme is to provide a safer and more connected cycle network for the people of Tauranga leading to improved transport choices and an increase in the number of cycle trips, especially to school and to work. You can learn more about this Programme at www.nzta.govt.nz.
This extension of the cycleway will require the installation of designated cycle lanes on both sides of Fraser Street between 18th Avenue and 11th Avenue, creation of a new flush median in the middle of the road and removal of all of the on-street parking areas to improve safety for turning traffic and cyclists along this area of Fraser Street. There are no changes proposed to any of the parking provided on the side roads.

- Include some parking areas where practical
